Stephen King has created quite a few memorable female roles – an author's obsessive admirer in Misery
, the telekinetic outcast in Carrie
, and of course, Beverly Marsh in IT
. With Andy Muschietti’s reboot of King’s novel and the reemergence of The Losers Club, I thought it’d be fun to talk about
how close the character of Beverly Marsh manages to be different and similar between the book and duo-logy.
This post talks about topics related to Beverly's arc in the book and movie including abuse, sexual violence, and puberty. Read at your own risk.
