"The Miracle Worker" Differences In The Novel And The Film

544 words - 3 pages

After reading the play, The Miracle Worker I thought a lot of things were different then from the way they showed it on the movie. The plot was all the same though; the only difference was that in the movie they skipped some scenes that weren't as important. I thought the setting was a lot different from how they described it in the play. From their descriptions I would have thought that they only have 1 servant, Viney. And Percy and that other girl were just children from other families that came to play. But when I saw the movie at the ladder scene you could ...view middle of the document...

Most of the characters where the same as in the play, I only thought James was younger, and the captain meaner in the book. One thing that I thought was exactly the same as what I imagined from after reading the book, was the scene when Annie is alone with Helen in the kitchen and she tries to teach her to use fork and spoon and how to fold a napkin. They acted it out exactly as it said on the play. There was also another scene; the one where Annie is teaching Percy on purpose to get Helen interested. I thought that was really smart and it was exactly the same as how I pictured it in my head from the play. The thing that was the most different in the play from the movie that I noticed was that it was Kate who told James to stand up to his dad and not Annie as the movie had it. And I also thought Kate played a smaller role in the movie then the play.I think the people that made the movie should have just left the flashbacks out because if you never read the play, you probably wouldn't have gotten it. And the letters that Annie made in Helen's hands looked really weird and different from what I thought they would be. I thought that when she made a letter in Helen's hands, it was kind of awkward because I don't think Helen is going to know how to make that same shape with her own hands by just feeling it.
