Booklicious: January Book-to-Film Trailers

December 30, 2010


Looks like January's a slow month for lit adaptations, as there are only three lined up this month. Interestingly, each is based on a book whose author hails from a different country - Canada, Poland and England. Needless to say, the three films share as many characteristics as do a transistor, the color chartreuse and a banana split. Video after the jump!

Barney's Version, starring Paul Giamatti, Rosamund Pike and Jake Hoffman. Based on Mordecai Richler's 1997 novel of the same name. In limited release starting Jan. 14.

The Way Back, loosely based on Slawomir Rawicz's memoir The Long Walk. Starring Colin Farrell, Ed Harriss, Jim Sturgess, Saoirse Ronan and Mark Strong. In limited release Jan. 21.

From Prada to Nada, an adaptation of Jane Austen's Sense and Sensibility. Starring Camilla Belle, Alexa Vega, Wilmer Valderrama and Luis Rosales. In theaters Jan. 28.
