littérature du Second Empire par la valeur sociale que l'on attribue au roman comme critique de la médiocrité de la petite bourgeoisie de province. Leitch's work provides a much needed model during this time of change in film adaptation studies that broadens one's understanding of film adaptation as well as our understanding of literature or textual studies. Leitch uses many examples in film to support the intertextual understanding of film adaptations as something that is not imposed on the process of adaptation, but as something that simply reflects the reality of the process of continual revision and allusion that we consider. In a film, we might go back to that same time and place through the use of a flashback.

Film Adaptation and Its Discontents: from 'Gone with the Wind' to 'The Passion of the Christ. Leitch's work provides an historical and theoretical look at film adaptation which combats the limiting view of adaptation as fidelity to an original text. Leitch's model uses critical theorists and many film examples to provide a coherent yet broad model that reflects the complexities of how adaptations actually behave and how they interact with other adaptations or other texts in general. Film and literature each have their own narrative structure. This understanding of adaptation leaves the field open for discussions about the adaptation's merit and purpose aside from fidelity to what came before and opens the discussions to deeper contextualized interpretations of works as they add to our understanding of a progenitor text, the text. Fidelity to all of it does not ensure popularity anyway. With this balanced approach exhibiting an in-depth knowledge of the work that came before him, and the model he presents which most closely fits adaptation as it is experienced and produced, Leitch's argument is overall strong and convincing. Chapter 5, Between Adaptation and Illusion' breaks this concept down into 10 categories (that are laid out in the chapter summaries below) with examples of films that employ the strategies described.
