Books To Movies and T.V. in 2022

1. The Nightingale

Set against the backdrop of World War II, Kristin Hannah’s novel tells the story of two sisters coming of age in France as they struggle to survive the German occupation. The story is inspired by the women of the French resistance who aided downed Allied soldiers in escaping Nazi-occupied territory and helped hide Jewish children. Actress-turned-director Mélanie Laurent will helm the adaptation based on a script by Dana Stevens. With real-life sisters Dakota and Elle Fanning starring, this will mark the first time the duo will play sisters on screen.

2. Killers of the Flower Moon: The Osage Murders and the Birth of the FBI

A Western crime drama, David Grann’s nonfiction book Killers of the Flower Moon: The Osage Murders and the Birth of the FBI investigates a series of murders of the Osage people in Osage county, Oklahoma that took place in the early 1920s after valuable oil was found on their land. The murders sparked a major investigation from the newly-formed FBI. Martin Scorsese’s follow-up to The Irishman and first film with Apple TV+ will star a myriad of some of the best working actors, including Jesse Plemons, Leonardo DiCaprio, Lily Gladstone, Brendan Fraser, and Robert De Niro.

Former real-life partners Ben Affleck and Ana de Armas will star in the erotic psychological thriller.
