[273] Disgrace (2008) Review

Starting off the month with a review for Den of Geek, of a film adaptation of a book I haven't read. I'm quite proud that, unlike the majority of my reviews for DoG, this got a comment(!), saying that the last line was a 'humdinger' (and another, less positive, one, which I will hopefully forget about soon enough). Check the review out below.

There have probably been enough column inches dedicated to film adaptations of literary classics to rival the word counts of War And Peace, Atlas Shrugged and Clarissa combined. And now, into the arena steps Disgrace, the silver screen version of the 1999 Booker Prize winning novel by Nobel Laureate JM Coetzee. Having not read the book, I'm entirely incapable of critiquing director Steve Jacobs and writer/producer Anna Maria Monticelli's efforts in this area, but even without a preconceived awareness of the property, it seems that something is missing.
