Obviously if you have seen the movie and read the book you must have noticed that some of these questions underline the differences between the two versions. Can you list all of the differences. Why change the chronicle from the book? How come movies seem to always alter the story from the book and give examples to illustrate if you can. Which do you think is the better account and why?
