Good movie adaptation

I read Babylon Revisited, by F. S. Fitzgerald. This autobiographical (alcoholism, Paris) short story was later turned into a movie The Last Time I Saw Paris, with Elizabeth Taylor. The movie is loosely based on the story, expands the wife character, and, for all the psychedelic colors, does a surprisingly good job at portraying a novelist, with all the ups and downs and uncertainties that go with the job.

Short story is available from Gutenberg (public domain in Australia; check the laws of your country), or from your local library. More about the movie on wikipedia.
