It’s hard to imagine a world of entertainment without the contribution of books in shaping them. Every year, we look forward to the movies that are based on our favorite books and that they do not disappoint. The recent few years weren’t about biographies, but they were an eclectic mix of stories told from women’s perspective to science fiction to some personal accounts. Let’s look at some of those movies based on books –
A Wrinkle in Time
