Book Vs Movie Podcast

The Witches of Eastwick”

The Margos dissect the differences between the 1983 novel from John Updike and the 1987 film starring Jack Nicholson.

The Book Vs. Movie podcast is in a witchy mood in this episode when the Margos talk about the 1983 book written by John Updike and the movie starring Jack Nicholson. It’s been 30 (!) years since this George Miller (Mad Max) directed film came onto to the consciousness of world culture. So how does it hold up and what differences did they make from the novel and film? Listen to find out. (Also which we prefer. It’s a doozy this time!) 

In this episode we discuss:

  • John Updike’s many literary achievements.
  • How freaking 80s is this story?
  • The performances of the leads including Cher, Michelle Pfeiffer and Susan Sarandon.
  • The special effects which were considered pretty amazing at the time.
  • The crazy pants direction and ending of the film
