QUIZ: Can You Guess Which Classic Novel This Movie Was Based On?

I’ll be the first to admit that I haven’t read every classic novel out there. Some of them are too much. The Aeneid, for instance— I’ve never read the Aeneid in its entirety. And since no one has bothered to make a modern-day movie out of it starring Michael B. Jordan, whatever happens in Virgil’s epic masterpiece will likely remain lost to me forever.
