"it's a mob family that is in the witness protection program. they're starting off in normandy trying to assimilate, trying to be normal which is extremely hard for them to do - take a mob family out of their element and put them in normandy it's not gonna have, it's not gonna go unnoticed." -Dianna Agron on "The Family"
I read the book the other day, did it in one go during a six hours long boat trip. It’s a very fun, light story to read. But now I wonder how different the script will be, because there aren’t that much dialogs, it’s more often what’s going in the characters’ minds. Maybe they will use voice overs, or will only try to recreate the atmosphere, but I actually hope they try and develop the interactions more.
Anyway, after reading it I think they couldn’t have chosen a better cast for the upcoming movie.
I’ve ordered the sequel, I heard it’s not as good as the original but this is an endearing family, makes you want to follow them a little bit more.
Really want this movie to be a success because I liked the sequel actually better than the first book as it focuses more on the characters’ individual storylines, and it would make a pretty awesome film too.
