Unfaithful: Relationships Between Film and Literature
FILM 157
Fall 2015
Section: 01  
Crosslisting: GRST 257

This course will explore the inevitable, often productive tension between films and their literary sources. "Faithful" adaptations tend to be those that fail. Using the methods of the new field of adaptation studies, the course will consider cinematic-literary doublings from the beginning of the silent era (Dracula and Nosferatu) to the present time (Stefan Zweig's fiction and The Grand Budapest Hotel). In select cases, the focus will be directed more sharply on social and political motivations for literary adaptations.
