Book. By a whisker.
- The book has an extra layer of detail. Important in understanding the motives of some characters.
- Hey filmmakers, don’t mess with Baxter’s intriguing beginning and sublime conclusion.
- The actors in the film were all slightly too good-looking (especially Bradley, played by Greg Kinnear) to fit with Baxter’s story.
- Winning film moment though – the ‘falling in love’ scenes between Katherine and Jenny, and Oscar and Chloe.
The Feast of Love by Charles Baxter.
