The Cannes Film Festival began a couple of days ago. It showcases international cinema, premiering new films from all over the world; inevitably, some of these films are based on books. I came across an article which highlights some literature-inspired films being featured this year.

Most of us will not make it to the French Riviera to see these films, but we can keep a look out for them when they are released in our home country. I’m especially looking forward to Julieta which is inspired by three Alice Munro stories.
