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.

Liz Gilbert had everything a modern woman is supposed to dream of having – a husband, a house, a successful career – yet like so many others, she found herself lost, confused, and searching for what she really wanted in life. Newly divorced and at a crossroads, Gilbert steps out of her comfort zone, risking everything to change her life, embarking on a journey around the world that becomes a quest for self-discovery. In her travels, she discovers the true pleasure of nourishment by eating in Italy; the power of prayer in India, and, finally and unexpectedly, the inner peace and balance of true love in Bali. Based upon the bestselling memoir by Elizabeth Gilbert.
