Which big screen versions of our favourite books have managed to preserve their essence, even introducing the original text to new audiences? Alexander Armstrong, presenter of Classic FM's Summer Book Club, has a good idea of the ones that work for him.
Based on the Booker prize-winning Schindler’s Ark by Thomas Keneally, the film tells the story of Oskar Schindler, a member of the Nazi Party who saved the lives of more than 1000 Jews. Alexander says: "With Steven Spielberg at the helm and the acting talents of Liam Neeson and Ralph Fiennes, the finished product was moving and unforgettable." John Williams picked up the Oscar for Best Original Score.
