Movie adaptations of Y/A (young adult) novels have been growing in popularity since the early 1980s when books by S.E. Hinton, including “The Outsiders”, “That Was Then…This Is Now” and “Rumblefish”, hit the big screen. In later years, the “Harry Potter” and “Twilight” cinematic franchises took the genre to another level. For a while there, film adaptations of dystopian Y/A fiction, including “The Hunger Games” and “Divergent” series were dominating. But the recent dismal failures of “The Darkest Minds” and “A Wrinkle in Time” indicate that that trend has (thankfully) come to an end. Instead, the dystopian future has been traded for the bleak present.
