Not so. The subtext he created Peter Webber, ruthlessly cutting off the script Hetre Olivia was adapted from the novel by Tracy Chevalier, which earned him a showdown with her, disappointed to see how his first book was made into a film stripped of his garments to become in different body projection.

This time, fortunately, was a director who was responsible for creating it, even if it was not given in the script. The other side of the coin is that professional screenwriters suffer more than they want: a director misses the subtext reflected in the role and merely reproduces dialogue, ending any form of subtlety that is a reflection of human communication and his greatness, namely the mixture of verbal and nonverbal communication, that every writer should dominate and create, and any director, orchestrating the fullest to achieve synergy.
