We all know that when a book is transformed for the silver screen it can often go terribly wrong, missing out on crucial storylines that leave lovers of the paperback ripping up their tickets. Luckily, Cinema Nova has a new night called Text Classics, dedicated to discussing the adaption of classic stories to the big screen. This is a place where like-minded moviegoers can watch a film, and then afterwards discuss its transformation. There will even be a panel of experts to lead the discussion.

This month’s movie is the Australian 1970’s classic Wake in Fright. The story line follows the experiences of a male teacher who becomes stranded in an outback town on his way to Sydney.
So which will be your favourite after this, book or film?

WHERE: Cinema Nova, 380 Lygon Street, Carlton, 3053
WHEN: Wednesday, 1 August, 6.45 pm.
