Political, Philosophical, and Action-Packed

By all practical reasons, Cloud Atlas, by David Mitchell, should not be made into a movie. It consists of six interconnected stories, set in six different eras, written in six different genres.

A timeline spanning 1850 to a post apocalyptic future didn’t scare three directors – the Wachowski siblings (The Matrix) and Tom Tykwer (Perfume: The Story of a Murderer). You can see their adaptation of Cloud Atlas, starring Tom Hanks, Natalie Portman, and Halle Berry, in the fall, but first, check out the book.
