Bridgerton is one of the most-anticipated premieres of the season. Here are a few changes the Netflix adaptation can and should make to the source material.
This is a must-read article that brings up key questions about source materials in books and adaptations to screen. There will be deviations from Julia Quinn’s books in both race and sexual encounters. There are also good comparisons to Outlander and Poldark, which were adapted to screen.
It raises the question:
- Do you prefer historical romance to be accurate to the times in which people lived?
- Do you prefer that history be adjusted in historical romance to be in tune with today’s movements towards race equality, the me-too campaign, or sexual orientation?
Feel free to comment.
