Comparing And Contrasting The Movie And Natalie Babbitt's Book Entitled Tuck Everlasting

904 words - 4 pages

Do you know a book called Tuck Everlasting which is written by Natalie Babbitt existed in this world? It is a very interesting novel with a very sad ending. It’s a story about a girl, who discovered a very dangerous secret about a particular spring water. When you drink the water, it makes you immortal. A movie on this book was produced later on. Things change when you have to audition something that is written. And so, the movie Tuck Everlasting was very different from the book Tuck Everlasting.
Winnie Foster, a ten-year-old girl, discovered a very dangerous secret about the spring water in the woods her parents owned. She found out that if the spring water is drunk, it makes one immortal. Winnie didn’t understand what it was like being immortal, until she met the Tucks, who had drunk from the spring water and had become immortal. She wanted to be immortal too, but they talked her out of it, except for Jesse Tuck. Jesse and Winnie liked each other very much.

Because she was a little girl in the book, immortality was the main thing that was going on. But she was about fifteen years old in the movie, which changed the whole meaning of the book Tuck Everlasting. A movie which was supposed to be about immortality was turned into a romantic film. Winnie Foster and Jesse Tuck did many things together, like swimming. They went to visit a rocky cliff, which Jesse called the Eiffel Tower, and had thea good time. Soon, they became deeply in love with each other and they kissed nearby a crackling fire. Winnie was a little girl in the book so, of course, she didn’t kiss Jesse. Even though the two liked each other, Winnie, unfortunately, didn’t want to live forever like Jesse so she chose the right way for her. Jesse was very sad in both the movie and the book.
When Winnie saw Jesse drinking the spring water (which was the key to immortality) Mae, Miles and Jesse kidnapped her and took her away on their horse. That was in the book but in the movie; Miles...
