Martin Scorsese directs Leo DiCaprio in this adaptation of Jordan Belfort’s 2008 memoir chronicling his journey from stockbroker to convict to motivational speaker (in theaters November 15). Watch the movie for beautiful people and wanton excess, but read the book for a more complete portrait of a man willing to risk everything in pursuit of extreme wealth and power.
Parkland (based on Reclaiming History: The Assassination of President John F. Kennedy)
A cinematic adaptation of Vincent Bugliosi’s nonfiction book, Parkland recounts the chaotic events that took place in Parkland Hospital on that fateful day in Dallas. The film opens October 4, but history buffs won’t want to miss the book, which was scrupulously researched and written over the course of 20 years.
Chloë Grace Moretz (you might remember her as Jack?s nemesis on 30 Rock) is the eponymous Carrie White, a teenager who uses telekinetic powers to exact revenge, in the latest iteration of Stephen King?s 1974 thriller. The film, out October 18, promises to be the most true-to-text adaptation of the super-scary original. Bring on the nightmares!
Best original screenplay? Whatever. As the fall movie lineup rears her lovely head, we’re most excited for all the upcoming literary adaptations. (Katniss Everdeen and Charles Dickens? Be still our Kindles hearts).
