Banned Books That Were Made Into Movies According to Ranker

"The banning of books has long been criticized, yet people still think seem to think that it's a good idea. You'll notice that some of the bans on this list are from within the last five or 10 years even. Yet, some filmmakers decide to fight back to the criticism being thrown at the novel. They'll make films as equally racy, violent, or challenging as the books they're based on, which then often also receive backlash from the same group of folks. However, that group is usually fairly small when compared to the entire world - so most of the films made from the banned books on this list did quite well at the box office.
Why did they do well? Because these books are some of the great classics of the last century of literature - and great raw material from a book often translates well to the big screen." - ranker.com
