How much was changed from the book?
Both wiki entries are pretty scarce unfortunately. It seems neither was popular enough to warrant more detailed wiki entries.
I'm just curious how much was changed from the book. Stone has a habit of changing quite a bit in his screenplays. Natural Born Killers was changed so much Tarantino disowned it. The wiki entries do show some of the changes, but it's not very detailed.
I'm most curious as to what "actually" happened. Of course, even the book itself could have been heavily dramatized. Books are by no means accurate portrayal of historical accounts.
The book says she went to the U.S. with a contractor, but the movie says it was marine sgt. I was under the impression from the movie that perhaps she seemed better suited to be single, and could not love men (other than the landlord), but I hear she's married now. That's good of course, I'm just a bit confused about the message of the movie. There's some dialogue from the monk iirc about how the doors in her home are situated, and how it relates to her life. Of how men go in one door, and out the other. Something like that. So I'm curious to what actually happened, and what message I should take from the dialogue.
