Yes "Strong Heart" would work as film because story is well fabricated and has deep interest in it.

I think it would be a great adventure film. The author writes a lot of detail during certain scenes so some things would have to be condensed in order for it to work.

I agree. I think it would be very interesting to watch on the big screen.

I believe it would make a good movie so long as the right actors play the roles. The story line would be interesting to watch.

I definitely agree with this! Casting makes a huge impact, and these characters would need to be cast appropriately.

OHHHH yes it would! A perfect story, perfect action scenarios, a beautiful place. I don't think the book has anything that it's missing. I would love to see those characters in 3D.

I think the story has various avenues to follow and that it would adapt perfectly to a film.

If this book translates into a movie, it would be fantastic. The financial aspect of producing is good. The expense of the movie will be more on shuttling the production crew from one location to another instead of making elaborate props in the studio. The great outdoors will be a very inviting attraction for the movie, the nature scenes, the scenery and the wild landscapes.

I haven't read the book, but I've read numerous reviews of it here in the forum. I strongly believe it would make for an awesome film. I'd definitely watch it.

I think that it could translate well to film, as you say, with all the beautiful scenery. The boat scenes may be tricky though.

I think this book has plenty to work with in terms of visual imagery, including surreal dreamlike scenes, that would work well within a film if done right. Since it is full of adventure, it should be easy to transform into a screenplay.

I love seeing sweeping natural locations on film, so this probably would be an ideal candidate for a movie like that. I also love seeing historical costumes come to life as well.
