Episode 06. TAMARA DREWE

Gemma Arterton as the titular Tamara Drewe.

In the final installment of our three-part series of "Films YOU Didn't Know Were Based on Comics" we tackle Stephen Frears' 2010 adaptation of Posy Simmonds' graphic novel TAMARA DREWE.  Though it is a change of pace from the tights and flights usually associated with comic books on film, we hope that you'll enjoy this non-genre diversion.  If you really need that genre fix, though, we've got you covered!  24 Panels' contributor Jeremy Woodcock (you can find more of his work at gives us his hilarious two cents on PREIST, which may or may not be in theatres now (it was last time I checked, but who knows; I'm sure it'll be on DVD any minute now).

Next time: Dru and David share the comic books THEY want to see adapted into films.  Send us a short MP3 (1-2 minutes) telling us what comics YOU want to see adapted, and we'll include it in the next episode!
