Gone Girl. “Truly odd movie.”
Tonight, October 3, join me in Edmonds, WA, for “The Movie Mashup: Wild Literary Adaptations on Film,” a talk in the Humanities Washington Speakers series. This one’s a look at some of the kookier ways movies have treated original texts: how The Odyssey became O Brother, Where Art Thou? and The Tempest turned into Forbidden Planet – that kind of thing. In the meantime, we’ll think about how movies differ from literature, always a rich subject. This is at 7 p.m., Edmonds Public Library, and it’s free.
The Overlook Podcast has a crossover episode: In this one Steve Scher and I are joined by Book Lust author and librarian extraordinaire Nancy Pearl, as we sort through thoughts of movie adaptations from books, with Gone Girl the particular focus. Give a listen here.
