Best Films Made from Good Novels

Note the word 'good' in the title. A number of stellar movies have been made from terrible novels: The Godfather, for example.

The English Patient

The Hours
Howards End
Lord of the Rings
The Lover
Mary Poppins
Master and Commander
(derived from several Patrick O'Brien novels)
The Name of the Rose
A Passage to India
Pride and Prejudice (the miniseries with Colin Firth and Jennifer Ehle)
A Room with a View
Sense and Sensibility
The Sheltering Sky
(This could also be considered one of the worst films made from a good novel. It falls apart where the book falls apart: with the death of Port.)
