The Eagle film of Rosemary Sutcliff’s history novel The Eagle of the Ninth reaches far east and central Europe

The Eagle film (movie), based upon Rosemary Sutcliff‘s novel The Eagle of the Ninth, was released on Wednesday (16th February) in The Phillipines, and today (18th February) in Romania. Maybe some people in those countries will stumble on this blog and post at the You Write tab about your views of Rosemary Sutcliff and how well the book is translated to the screen. The film opens in Indonesia on 23rd February and Thailand on 24th. (I have managed to find a Romanian film poster today, 20 February, but not yet any Romanian reviews)

One thought on “The Eagle film of Rosemary Sutcliff’s history novel The Eagle of the Ninth reaches far east and central Europe”

  1. Why don’t some Roman historians comment here on the accuracy of the film, and on whatever inaccuracies they find? Jacko
