Product Description
Study Guide compares the novel The Watsons go to Birmingham - 1963 by Christopher Paul Curtis to the movie The Watsons Go to Birmingham (2013) This is the only movie version of The Watsons Go to Birmingham. The film leaves out several subplots in the book, but the main plot is accurate. Most of the book takes place in Detroit. The movie focuses on a few chapters set in Birmingham. The biggest difference is the tone. The book is delightfully funny and witty. The movie is not.

IS NOT LIKE THE BOOK by Christopher Paul Curtis

RECOMMENDED MOVIE: The Watsons Go to Birmingham (2013) starring Anika Noni Rose, David Alan Grier, Bryce Clyde Jenkins, Harrison Knight, Skai Jackson and Wood Harris. Directed by Kenny Leon. Arc-Entertainment.
