The similarities is the plot is exactly the same. A lot of the same scenes are represented on both. Differences are the movies seems to be going way faster and skipping some parts. What’s surprising to me is that how different the neighbors are portrayed in the book compared to the movie.
I noticed the speed of the story also.
I somewhat agree with this statement.
I agree. I didn’t expect the neighborhood to look like it does in the movie
I agree, the neighbors are portrayed differently.
The court case started much sooner in the movie. I think this is because it was a highlight of the story so they wanted to make it a bigger deal. I imagined it happening much faster than it actually does.
Yeah the movie is moving exponentially faster than the novel.
Yeah it does seem to be movie faster.
I agree that the wanted to court sene to be the rising climax of the story.
Yeah there was a lot more build up in the book
Yea, it came up quick
During the movie they have Mr. Radley fill in the whole in the tree with cement in front of the children instead of having them find the whole already filled. Also the speed up the story in the movie compared to the book so it isn’t as long.
I agree. The movie happens much faster.
We know because small details were left out
I agree that was different
I agree it did go by super fast.
They had to make differences because if they didn’t the movie would be exponentially longer. A difference in what I imagined is scouts hair and outfits is much more Tom boy. I thought she would have longer hair and wear dresses.
I also thought she would look more like a girl.
Nice job, very intellectual
That’s exactly how I imagined her
I thought Atticus and Calpurnia would look different. And they made changes to the movie to most likely save time and those things probably weren’t that important
I they would look different too
I thought Calpurnia would look way different too.
One thing I noticed about the movie was that it didn’t really show the significance of the children finding gifts in the tree. The book made the event of them finding presents very prominent but the movie only showed them receiving a few things.
The neighborhood in the movie was how I imagined it to be in the book.
I also noticed that
I noticed that the gifts weren’t found as important either, in the movie.
So far some of the similarities are Scout and Jem meet Dill, they try seeing Boo, the kids still go to the trial, Atticus still makes it evident that Bob Ewell is guilty, and many more. A few differences are Dill didn’t make up an excuse where they were after Jems pants stuck to the fence, Atticus had Tom Robinson try to catch something to demonstrate his disability, Jem and Scout are at the tree while Boo’s father filled the tree with cement and more.
I noticed the same things
They left out so many events in the movie and the ones that are in there are out of order from the book. Some similarities are that they still had the trial and most of the speaking parts are the same. I knew the movie was not gonna be anywhere near the same as the book because that’s how it always works
I noticed that too
Some of the changes were cutting out the scene with Scout’s encounter with her teacher on the first day of school, when all the white men tried to make Atticus move so they could kill Tom Robbinson. They made some of these changes so the movie wouldn’t be too long and boring. I thought the main characters would look different, especially Atticus and Dill.
I noticed that in they movie hem and scout only found one thing in the tree together before Radley filled it with cement.
One of the biggest differences is how fast it’s moving. They’re also skipping a few things and showing the highlights. One big difference is the neighborhood I expected it to look different.
The book and movie were similar plot wise and following with similar events but, there are few small tweaks and events changed in the movie campared to the book. Characters were also given a different look in the movie than the book had described.
Thats true, some events were changed
The book and the movie had a pretty same plot but a few different parts. Some the characters were given different looks and some events may have been left out.
I saw that too
I saw that also
I noticed that as well.
The main plot and order of events in the story and movie are the same, but during the movie they add a few extra details and take some away. For example, Tom Robinson’s arm isn’t short in the movie but Atticus also throws a jar for him to catch with his useable arm.
Sounds about right.
I noticed those too
I didn’t even think about that difference. Good job!
One difference I noticed is that the kids didn’t find as much in the tree trunk. Another difference was, like most books made into movies, parts of the story were missing. The movie also briefly touches on certain things that were more in-depth in the book.
Yeah I noticed that also.
Some differences that I noticed was how they didn’t find much in the tree. Mr. Radley also filled it up in front of them. Probably did this scene so fast so they can have more time for the trail.
In the in the film, Mr. Radley fills the tree with concrete in front of the children, while in the novel he fills in when they are gone. They did this to show the audience that Mr. Radley is mad at the children and Arthur. This was different to my own imagination, because in my mind I visualized this scene in an isolated place not in a busy neighborhood.
The one big difference is the things the kids find in the tree trunk. Another difference is that’s e hardly see or hear Scout and Jen during the trial in the movie. It was basically how I imagined it to be.
Some differences I noticed was Tom Robinson arm. It wasn’t the same how it was in the book. Also noticed that they didn’t find much in the tree like they did in the book.
Very good comment.
There was a couple differences that I noticed. For one was the she were a dress more in the movie than she did in the book. Also Aunt Alexander wasn’t in the movie.
Those are some great observations! Good job.
That was weird that aunt Alexander wasn’t in the movie
One different I noticed is that Jem found all the stuff in the tree then told Scout later what he found later after Mr. Radley filled in the hole. Another thing I noticed is that the trial was way early in the book.
I noticed those too. Good job.
I forgot about that part.
Some similarities were that boo left them the soap carvings in the tree and it ended up getting filled. I’m the book it doesn’t happen the first time they find something. I think they made changes like this in the movie because the book was very detailed and they needed ways to save time.
In th movie their was no ms dubose like in the book. In the movie dill is younger. Last in the court room Atticus never throw a glass at Tom Robinson like he did in the movie.
The plot and order of events were the same in the book in the movie. The trial came a lot sooner in the movie than in the book. This was probably because the producers wanted to get to the main part of the story faster.
Write something about yourself. No need to be fancy, just an overview.
