Literary Movies: Rabbit, Run

Rabbit, Run Movie PosterI didn’t enjoy my experience reading Rabbit, Run by John Updike. It’s a novel with very little to say and it spends way too much time saying it.

So it makes complete sense that Hollywood made it into a movie.

The 1970 film stars James Cann as Rabbit and Carrie Snodgrass as Janice. (Snodgrass also played Sarah Wheeler in one of my favorite Clint Eastwood movies, Pale Rider.)

I have not seen this movie. It doesn’t appear to be in high rotation at the local Blockbuster, or NetFlix for that matter. But if the adaptation is anything close to literal, it’s not likely to be very enjoyable.

I do, on the other hand, like the movie poster.
