Project #84605 - Dennis Lehane's novel VS Clint Eastwood's movie

Giving details and examples from both Dennis Lehane's novel and Clint Eastwood's movie, what can novels do that movies can't, and what can movies do that novels can't?

         A movie based on a novel is inevitably an interpretation of the novel--not only by the screenwriter, but by the director, the actors, and even the set designers, cinematographers, etc.  Thinking of specific characters--Jimmy, Sean, Dave, Celeste, Annabeth, Whitey, Katie, etc,--which seem the most different in the movie from what you had expected reading the book?

         Is the setting the way you had pictured it?  Or, if you watched the movie first, did you find yourself picturing the images from the movie when you read the novel?

         Music is obviously one thing that novels can't do. What if anything does the music (written by Eastwood himself) add to the story?

         Why does the movie use so many aerial shots of the neighborhood and the park where Katie was found?

        What's the purpose of the opening scene in the "now" part of the movie, with Sean and Whitey at the scene of an auto accident?

        Which did you like better, and why?
