Beckett on Film

2003 NR

In this breathtaking summit of theatrical and cinematic talent, 19 film directors transform the lion's share of Samuel Beckett's stage plays into 19 movies, ranging in length from 45 seconds ("Breath") to two hours ("Waiting for Godot," the writer's most famous work). Anthony Minghella, Neil Jordan and Atom Egoyan each direct a movie, and the acting roster includes Julianne Moore, John Gielgud and Kristin Scott Thomas.
