In the movie, the setting of the story is in early 20th century (1914) while in the book, the novel is set in 1880.
In addition, the book has described that Winnie loved Jesse but Jesse is only thinking of her as a friend since he was older than Winnie.
One of these books is Tuck Everlasting, which is the most recent feature movie which is based on a best-seller children’s story.
Tuck Everlasting is a children’s book written by Natalie Babbitt and published in 1975 and it is also noted as a 2002 film based on the aforementioned book (The Glencoe Literature Library 3), .
However, in the movie, both the characters are in love with each other.
Another contrasting element in the movie and the book of Tuck Everlasting is the character of Mae. In the book, the author has made you picture how the individual characters look and in the Tuck Everlasting movie, the characters are seen as they are described in the book.Such result is a big surprise for the reader and the watcher.Winnie came from a well-bred, straitlaced family who was lost in the woods, as she attempted to escape with her smothered lifestyle.In the woods, Winnie encountered the Tuck family, who are known to be a band of immortals due to a spring from which the family drank years ago.In the movie, we can feel and see the sadness of Jesse because his love is not with him anymore but also happy because Winnie was not trapped in time like he and the rest of the Tuck family.Another element in the movie that can be compared with the book is the element of music.In the film, she was rescued from jail when Jesse and Miles stage an attack on Winnie (Archcraft 1) to divert the attention of the sheriff to them but in the book, such scene did not happened. In the file, the man in the yellow coat attacks Jesse, to contradict and negate the immortality of Jesse but in the story in the book, the man recommends that the Tucks should perform deadly feats to prove the power of the springs to the general public, but the man never actually attacks any of the members of the Tuck family. However, in the movie, people just see all the description of the main character so it moves along faster than in the book.The scenery is said to be very beautiful in the movie, because of the colors and cinematographic enhancement, and spectacular effects made by the directors and other people behind the movie.
