The 10 Best Unfaithful Movie Adaptations

"No one said they had to play it by the book. Adaptations are fascinating to see come to life mainly because of the question that always has to tag along with them: "how faithful will the movie be?" For fans of the novel or original story, it can be a true heartbreak to see stories they love rendered in a completely different fashion. Not to mention, sometimes the authors know best, and the additions or subtractions screenwriters and directors make end up hurting the film more than helping. But occasionally there's a film that seems to do the impossible.
Now and then an adaptation comes along that wildly differs from what it is adapting yet carves out a confident identity for itself that is not just sensible but astounding in quality. The 10 below are the ones that defy the norms, the unfaithful adaptations that may seem to be committing sacrilege but make for one hell of a movie experience."
