Transcript of Breaking Dawn Adaption

Breaking Dawn
Stephanie Mayer
Book to Movie
By: Arianna Posey :) - Adaption type:
The Faithful Analogy.
Reason being, almost everything is the same in this adaption.. Charactors, Plot,Dialog, Setting, etc. Similarities.. The connection felt between Bella and her Father as he realized he was giving away his daughter was shown in both book and movie. The setting of the wedding was set up in the movie almost exactly like it was described in the book. Certain things that hold extreme importance and symbolism pertaining to the wedding in the book are present in the movie. The intro to the movie differs from that of he book; being as in the book the intro consists of several different activities that aren't shown in the movie. They could have gotten by with this, I feel, apart from one event in the book that shouldn't have been left out. When Bella talks to her mother about being married at a young age, which is known as the worst she could do. The fact that Rene' was okay with this showed a relationship that shouldn't have been ignored. The nightmare Bella has before the wedding is so important to the story, symbolizing everything that this wedding represents. The fear of Voultouri, transformation, and simple pre-wedding jitters are all put together in Bella's dream, which I think also foreshadows the struggle this event with bring with facing Voultouri. The dream is on both book and movie, and although differs slightly, has the same sequence of events, meaning, and resolution. "Only to stagger to a halt as I got a clear view of the hillock he sat apon; It was not earth and rock, but a pile of human bodies of those I slowly recognized as the lifeless and drained bodies of those I knew and loved. The child opened his bright, bloodred eyes"(Meyer 37). Such as the event of giving Bella her 'something old and blue' from her mother and father. This held such an importance in the relationship of Bella and her parents. She showed such a reaction to this that symbolized the torment she'd feel after this night when she'd never see her family again. "My throat got all thick, 'Mom, Dad..you shouldn't have'"(Meyer46). And also, the security she felt when she saw her groom's face, thus being the only thing that got her successfully down the isle. Being shown in the movie and book shows just had in love the couple is, and just how dependent she is on her feelings for Edward. The fact that Bella is completely unaware of where she is being taken for her honeymoon in either versions of the story gives this event a romantic edge that should be viewed in both. This shows how special Edward wants the surprise to be and how much he wants her enjoy it. "Edward hadn't dropped a single hint, I wasn't too stressed about the mystery. Although it was a little strange not knowing where I would be sleeping..or hopefully not sleeping..tomorrow night" (Meyer 40). The morning after scene has so many symbolic references to later events and current situations, and also shows the opposite feeling of Edward and Bella toward that type of activity, and why Edward was so afraid to try in the first place. "'Stop acting like I'm not a monster for having agreed to this,' cried Edward in a tone I hardly recognized"(Meyer 88). The signs of Bella's pregnancy favor greatly.
From chicken causing her to be sick, to her being late, and feeling the child move, they all aline accordingly with the movie. "What happened to change everything was a soft little nudge bumped my hand--from the inside"(Meyer 126) Bella is led down the inside staircase and out the back door by Charlie in the book, which Alice uses to give Bella a complete rush of the event, this doesn't happen in the movie. Instead she is lead through a pathway, which takes away from the bewilderment Bella is made to feel in the book. "'You aren't to see the decorations. I want the full effect to hit you as you come down the stairs'"(Meyer 41). Citations: Meyer, Stephenie. Breaking Dawn. New York: Little, Brown, and Company, 2008. Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn. Dir. Bill Condon. Summit Entertainment, 2012. DVD. Bella depends on Rosalie to care for the baby and protect it from the ones who want the baby dead. This is not only unusual for Bella to turn to Rosalie for help, but even more so for her to agree to bond with Bella. Rosalie has no respect for Bella's decision to become a vampire, therefor never tries to form any kind of connection with her and this is why I feel it's important in both movie and book. The fact that Jacob imprints in the baby the very first second he sees her hold an importance that is shown throughout all 4 Twilight books and couldn't possibly been left from the movie. Jacob never left Bella, or gave up on her and now that he's fallen for Renesme' it's obvious why he was unable to part from her. When Edward tells Jacob that he wants for Jacob to kill him if Bella dies, a connection is made that isn't shown in the book the way it's meant to be expressed in the book.
Such as the way Jacob and Edward share a love for Bella that gives them similar feelings. They appear angry throughout the entire scene in the movie. Bella, from the start of the pregnancy, knows she cannot give up her baby. She has a bond with her child that she couldn't fathom parting from. This foreshadows an importance between Jacob and the baby that isn't yet revealed. Jacob's struggle with his tribe and following under a leader when he is rightful chief is displayed in importance in the book, and because it was so valued to the story it was put in the movie. When Jacob breaks away from his tribe, he basically joined forces with the Cullens, which was a milestone in the story. Charlie, in the book, comes to the Cullen house to see Bella when she's about to have the baby. Thus, finding out there is something off in the Cullen family. In the movie Charlie is almost vacant. In the book, The Cullens know they've never lost Bella, while in the movie, they're certain she's dead until they see the transformation taking place. The moment Jacob imprints on Renesmee is described and portrayed in a perfect adaption from words to actions. The words that are used to describe the immediate transaction from the most vicious hate to the sweetest love are displayed perfectly by Jacob in the movie. "The gravity of the Earth no longer held me to where I stood. It was the baby girl in the blond vampires arms that held me here now"(Meyer 360). Jacob is present at the Cullen's house during the pregnancy in the book much more so than he is during the movie. Many of the conversations that were held were left out because of the absence of Jacob in many scenes. Bella says that she's consumed with joy and pleasure when walking down the aisle toward Edward and that she's unable to look away or see anything in the room apart from her perfection of Edward, meanwhile in the movie Bella is distracted, unfocused, and her eyes dart from corner to corner of the area. I feel like this takes away from the beauty of this scene. The way that the housemaid feels toward Edward and Bella's relationship is very different. She shows a an anger and expectation of evil over him in the movie, while in the book she's only worried for Bella's well fair. Which, I think in the book does more good for the rising action on the story by foreshadowing that the baby will bring pain, and not death like in the movie. When the book is in Jacob's point of view it shows a lot of what goes on in the life of the tribe, which gives readers an insight of the wolves as more than just enemies of the Cullens'. All of which is completely nonexsistant in the movie. Differences... I chose Breaking Dawn as my adaption and motivation I felt for this would be that the book and movie appeals to my reading and entertainment type and also I've always been noted on differences throughout the movie and this gives me opportunity to express these.
