Adaptation Mini #1: From Page To Screen – The Interviews (Part 1)

Kendyl and first-time host Nicole sit down to talk about some interviews Kendyl did at the From Page To Screen festival earlier this year. The interview with screenwriter Simon Beaufoy (Salmon Fishing in the Yeman, Catching Fire) gets the girls excited for the new Hunger Games installment as well as discussing the role of screenwriters in film making. The interview with English and Film lecturer at the University of Exeter, Dr. Corinna Wagner about DH Lawrence’s Women in Love and the 1969 adaptation leads into quite the discussion about how relationships are viewed today.

A special thanks to everyone at From Page to Screen for making these interviews possible!
