Books and movies are so different that we really shouldn’t compare them. And yet, we just can’t help it. In this presentation Bill Wine, KYW Movie Critic and Professor of Film at La Salle University, discusses the psychological differences between the reading and viewing experience. He also analyzes the way classic and modern novels have been translated into films. A collective of indelible written works that have provided the source material for storied, memorable movies are discussed, including The Grapes of Wrath, To Kill a Mockingbird, Schindler’s List, Bridget Jones’ Diary, The Graduate, A Clockwork Orange, The Silence of the Lambs, Sophie’s Choice, The Maltese Falcon and more. And don’t worry; he will also deal with the insufferable bombs! You are encouraged to bring your preferences, opinions, memories and questions. This presentation is a program of the Pennsylvania Humanities Council supported in part by the National Endowment for the Humanities. Register now for this program. All are welcome!
