From Page to Screen at The State Theatre

Some critics allege that that great books make bad movies. What artistic challenges do filmmakers face adapting literary works from page to screen? How do directors, screenwriters and actors transform ideas on the page into images on the screen? How does literature inspire film? How does film inspire literature?

The State Theatre and its community partners invite you to explore these and other questions through interactive pre-film discussions moderated by experts.

At an elite, old-fashioned boarding school in New England, a passionate English teacher inspires his students to rebel against convention and seize the potential of every day, courting the disdain of the stern headmaster.

Community Partner: MJC Literature and Language Department

Doors open at 6; discussion at 6:30; film at 7 p.m.
