To Kill a Mockingbird ; Tender Mercies ; and, the Trip to Bountiful: Three Screenplays (Paperback)Horton Foote (author)
- Publisher out of stock
Each of the three screenplays sprang from a different origin. One was adapted from the novel by Harper Lee, who later wrote, "If the integrity of a film adaptation is measured by the degree to which the novelist's intent is preserved, Mr. Foote's screenplay should be studied as a classic." Tender Mercies was conceived for the screen, and The Trip to Bountiful came from Foote's own stage and television play. While each demanded solutions to different cinematic problems, all are marked by Foote's own mastery of the screenwriting form, as well as his understanding of human relationships. All three show a modern Chekhov at work, revealing the deep currents of American society through the simplest details of daily life.
