theprestige20069151_f.jpgSaturday night is film night chez Bride of the Book God, and quite often we end up watching an adaptation of something one of us has read, is reading or meant to read before watching the movie but forgot. The Prestige is adapted from the novel by Christopher Priest which I talked about here, and I am pleased to say that, having enjoyed the book, the film version didn’t disappoint. Changes always have to be made to translate something from paper to screen, but I thought Christopher Nolan’s alterations made sense, and his perspective on the story made for an interesting and thought-provoking film about rivalry, obsession and, of course, magic. Plus a Saturday night looking at Hugh Jackman and Christian Bale is never wasted.
