Coming soon: a movie version of "Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close," a haunting, beautiful book by Jonathan Safran Foer. It's probably the best book I read last year, one of the few I still think about long after turning the last page.
The movie will star Tom Hanks, Sandra Bullock, John Goodman and Viola Davis. It follows the trend of books I've recently enjoyed becoming big-budget Hollywood productions. Others include "The Hunger Games," "One Day," "The Help" and "The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo." It makes me a little sad. But I'll probably still go see them.http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0477302/
