Many authors famously rejected the adaptations of their works, and some like J.D. Salinger even outright forbade it—which is why we’ll never see a Catcher in the Rye movie.

On the Royal Front, this is a great movie about Prince Albert (Colin Firth) who was thrown into the role of King when his father died and later his brother abdicated.

The age of communication via radio means that Albert’s speech stammer cannot be hidden from public any longer. ‘Belle; A True Story of Love that Defied Convention’ directed by Amma Asante (Icon Films, 2013) This costume drama is based on a true story about an illegitimate mixed race daughter, called Dido Elizabeth Belle, of an English Royal Navy Admiral who was raised by her great uncle.
