Ian McEwan is one of the most acclaimed – and, at times, controversial – contemporary UK novelists and an astonishing number of his works have made it to the screen. But he has also written original screenplays and adapted the novels of numerous other writers for the screen.
Over the course of four weeks, we’ll take a closer look at McEwan’s relationship with film across his long and distinguished career.
Week 1: Making a Name – The Cement Garden to Atonement
Week 2: The Bad Son – McEwan in Hollywood
Week 3: Adapting – screenplays and TV
Week 4: Chesil Beach Days – the present and future of McEwan on screen
Using Zoom, the course will deliver expert tuition, film clips and group discussion – all in the comfort of your own home.
