Fiction and Film

Many novels have been made into great films – but what is lost, and what is gained? Compare three works with three films, and explore how a novel is brought to life on the screen. The three texts and films reviewed are James Joyce’s The Dead, F. Scott Fitzgerald’s The Last Tycoon and Mordecai Richler’s Barney’s Version.
