A book that I have read and loved was The Cure. It is being turned into a movie that is to be released tomorrow.

I work for a marketing company that is working on this campaign and looking at the website, I think this is a great choice of a book / movie combination.

It is based on a true story about a father who went to great lengths to find a cure for his dying children. The journey that is portrayed is very inspirational and I cannot wait to see it on the big screen.

In my opinion some of the best movies are based on books, and this will be another spectacular release.

Here is a link with trailers:

My favorite book. I read somewhere that this was being made into a movie in 2001, but because of September 11th, it was stopped due to the plane section of the book.
