Aria: The movie adaptation of Falling Trees is coming to theaters tomorrow, you're coming with me!
Aria: I knew you'd love it!
Aria: I'll pick you up at 6 :)
Rayna: I read the book. It was amazing!
Rayna: Oh, I don't know if I want to watch it...
Aria is euphoric after having read a bestselling Sci-Fi book called: Falling Trees. She urges Rayna to read the book as well, and motivated by Aria's enthusiasm, Rayna visits the library to pick up a copy of the popular Sci-Fi book.
Rayna is enraptured by the book's vivid descriptions. She cannot put it down, and reads all day until she finishes the book at night.
Rayna is reluctant because she knows if the book is poorly adapted it will taint her personal interpretation of Falling Trees. She enjoys the intimacy of reading, and fears the movie might alienate her. Aria does not give her the chance to say no.
The Next Day Aria arrives at 6 pm in high spirits. Rayna is still hesitant, but she does not have the heart to bail on her friend upon seeing how excited she is.
Aria's enthusiasm dies down as the movie unfolds. She had begun watching the movie with an open mind, however she is dispirited by the adaptation's deviations from the book. Rayna had low expectations from the beginning and is not surprised by the movie's shortcomings.
The two friends grumble their criticisms on the way back from the theater. Aria complains that the actors' poorly depicted the multidimensional book characters, and Rayna expresses anger over plot alterations and inaccurate landscape portrayal.
