The movie "The Sweet Hereafter", after being observed, was seen to be quite different than the novel. One of the differences is that, the movie never showed Billy and his family going to Jamaica. It didn't even mention anything about Jamaica, while in the novel, it was an important element of the story. Also, Billy never seemed drunk in the movie, whereas in the book, Billy was shown as a drunkard after the death of his wife and his children. Moreover, the movie totally cut out the last chapter of the novel; when the fair takes place. It didn't show the Dolby and the town's rude behavior towards Dolores. There were also other parts that varied different between the novel and the movie. For example, the part where they show Sam and Nichole having a sexual relationship. This scene was shown very differently in the movie from the novel. In addition to this, the movie also didn't show all the stops that Dolores visited to pick up the children for school. The movie only explained the important stops, like picking up Sean

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
