Neil’s recent suggestion about combining books group discussions with trips to the movie theater is ripe with possibilities in the next few months. Coming soon to a theater near you:
My Sister’s Keeper, based on the book by Jodi Picoult, is scheduled to open on June 26. It stars Alec Baldwin, Abigail Breslin, Cameron Diaz, and Jason Patrick.
Martin Scorsese directs Shutter Island, based on the book by Dennis Lehane and starring Leonardo DiCaprio. It opens in October.
Coming in December is The Lovely Bones based on the Alice Sebold novel. This one is directed by Peter Jackson and stars Saoirse Ronan (remember her in Atonement?), Mark Wahlberg, Rachel Weisz, Susan Sarandon, and Stanley Tucci (again).
