From Book to Film: Ashes in the Snow




Arriving in selected theatres and VOD today from Vertical Entertainment is the WWII drama Ashes in the Snow, which is based on the New York Bestseller "Between Shades Of Gray" by Ruta Sepetys.

Directed by Marius Markevicius and adapted for the screen by Ben York Jones, the 99-minute film stars Bel Powley, Martin Wallstrom, and Lisa Loven Kongsli.

Set during World War II, Ashes in the Snow centers around a 16 year-old aspiring artist (played by Bel Powley) and her family, who are deported to Siberia amidst Stalin's brutal dismantling of the Baltic region. One girl's passion for art and her never-ending hope will break the silence of history.



Penguin Randomhouse has re-released the "Between Shades Of Gray" to tie-in with the film's release. The book has been retitled as "Ashes in the Snow" and has a brand-new cover design, which is very similar to the film's poster.

(FYI: I'll be reviewing the book soon!)

  1. I'm pretty sure I've seen advertisement for the movie going around and didn't realize there was a book. This definitely looks like it will be a good read and movie! Jessi The Book Cove

    1. I wasn't aware of the book or the film until recently. On page 109 in the book and it's really good!
