Not a movie but a two-part drama on BBC over Christmas. Looking forward to it.

How was it? I haven't seen a release date for it in the US yet, but now I'm curious to read the book!

Quite possibly better than the book. I enjoyed the book but felt the story of the miniaturist was unnecessary. However I didn't feel that with the TV adaptation. The scenery and the costumes were amazing. Much more opulent than I imagined.

 

The movie could potentially be better than the book! I thought the premise and start of the novel were interesting but then it took a strange turn and fizzled out for me. It is a fascinating setting though, so with a few minor adjustments I think it would make a good movie. I'm going to see if I can find it.
