Rivers of Story: Some Filmic Afterlives of "Pericles"

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

Some stories are like rivers, just as rivers hold their own stories. This essay considers origins and movie adaptations of Shakespeare's Pericles, tracking them into territory where the source play is one staging place for a longer narrative history, and the film need not acknowledge or show awareness of the play. Texts include the French movie, Paris nous appartient or Paris Belongs to Us (1961), the American A Love Song for Bobby Long (2004), and the Australian Aboriginal musical film Bran Nue Dae (2009).
