Dr. Chandra - Differences Between The Novel and The Film

Differences Between The Novel and The Film

Dr. Chandra is played by Bob Balaban in the film 2010. The film version of the novel drops his Indian heritage and changes his institutional affiliation to the University of Chicago but retains his emotional ties with HAL. Balaban's performance is mostly cold and unemotional, as in the novel, although Chandra's more abrasive character traits are not explored.

Famous quotes containing the words differences between the, differences between, differences, the and/or film:

    What strikes many twin researchers now is not how much identical twins are alike, but rather how different they are, given the same genetic makeup....Multiples don’t walk around in lockstep, talking in unison, thinking identical thoughts. The bond for normal twins, whether they are identical or fraternal, is based on how they, as individuals who are keenly aware of the differences between them, learn to relate to one another.
    Pamela Patrick Novotny (20th century)

    Generally there is no consistent evidence of significant differences in school achievement between children of working and nonworking mothers, but differences that do appear are often related to maternal satisfaction with her chosen role, and the quality of substitute care.
    Ruth E. Zambrana, U.S. researcher, M. Hurst, and R.L. Hite. “The Working Mother in Contemporary Perspectives: A Review of Literature,” Pediatrics (December 1979)

    I ... must continue to strive for more knowledge and more power, though the new knowledge always contradicts the old and the new power is the destruction of the fools who misuse it.
    George Bernard Shaw (1856–1950)

    Lay not that flattering unction to your soul,
    That not your trespass but my madness speaks;
    It will but skin and film the ulcerous place,
    Whilst rank corruption, mining all within,
    Infects unseen.
    William Shakespeare (1564–1616)
