Road Trip Wednesday: From Screen to Page

Kate Hart
Books are made into movies all the time. But lousy merchandise tie-ins aside, what about the reverse - what movie would you like to read in book-form?

The Royal Tenenbaums.
Ensemble cast of characters, each with a fascinating back story and bizarre sense of humor? Yes please.

Also, I found some amazing crafts and toys when I searched for images.

What about you? Join us at YA Highway and tell us your pick!


  1. Um, mine is not up yet, but even after seeing yours, I'm not changing it.

  2. Wow. I didn't realize that The Royal Tenenbaums had such a cult following. I should, but didn't. Fail.

  3. I assumed that WAS a book first :) I mean, I haven't seen it but I remember hearing reviews and all that- seems like a really good choice.

  4. Nice--The Royal Tenenbaums would be epic. Could a Sedaris write it?

  5. The Royal Tenenbaums! I would've never thought of that. Such a strange, strange movie. I went to see it with my grandma when I was in HS, and I really didn't know what to think of it. I wonder if I'd feel the same if I saw it now...

    BTW, love the Lego dudes (and dudette).

  6. I also didn't know this one had a cult're right, interesting characters.

  7. Oooh I am with Rebecca, a Sedaris would really nail the tone of this story. Oh man, Kate, you have just inspired me to watch this again later. LOVE LOVE LOVE.

    on a related note: Why is Owen Wilson the bomb, always?

  8. OOOOOHHHHHH I so love this movie. I love Wes Anderson more than life itself.
    I have this whole theory about pink being royal's signature color (duh) and blue being Henry Sherman's color, and that as she wavers, Ethelin's clothes reflect who she's edging toward in each scene.

    Watch it with that in mind and tell me if I'm crazy. I swear I'm not.
    Love the cast, the music, the sets, the dialog, love everything about this movie.
    great pick!

  9. Man, I totally need to watch this movie!

    By the way, that Lego pic is awesome. Legos for the win!
