Discussion About The Godfather

  1. Monifa ie Monie Valentine

    Having seen the movie and only having read 30 pages so far the script is very similar to the film which I like. I like films that stay close to the written material. I suppose Francis Ford Coppola being the writer and director has a lot to do with it. The writing is very simple and easy to read. It moves at a nice pace like an adaptation should. It feels like a novel when I read it. But I remember the visuals from the film.
