This series of films will focus on stories that have moved from the written page to the movie screen.
From a short story, F. Scott Fitzgerald’s “The Curious Case of Benjamin Button,” to a magazine serial, Leo Tolstoy’s “Anna Karenina,” to novels set in the 50s,60s and 2000s. These include Patricia Highsmith’s “The Price of Salt” (also titled “Carol,” the name of the film as well) Julian Barnes’ Man Booker Prize winner ”The Sense of an Ending,” and Robert Harris’ taut thriller “The Ghost Writer.
Anyone who is interested may also read the corresponding fiction before viewing but it is not necessary for the enjoyment of watching these finely crafted cinematic works of art.
Jack and Pastor Judy will be taking a long delayed trip and will be gone the months of February and March. Films will resume again in April.
