The French Revolution makes for great drama. This lesson has not been lost on Hilary Mantel, whose book brings a 20th-century sensibility to the stirring events of 1789. Mantel's approach is nothing if not ambitious: her three main characters, Georges-Jacques Danton, Maximilien Robespierre & Camille Desmoulins, have been major players in the early days of the revolution --men whose mix of ambition, idealism & ego helped unleash the Terror and brought them eventually to their own tragic ends.

OTHER EVENTS NEAR YOU 
PULP FICTION SERIES @ JACOB BURNS FILM CENTER

Including several French movies by masters such as François Truffaut, Jean-Luc Godard, Claude Chabrol & Bertrand Tavernier!

 

Churned out quick and cheap on the coarse paper from which its name derives, pulp fiction was made for the movies. Filmmakers discovered a vulgar poetry in the damaged vixens, trigger-happy antiheroes, and unpredictable psychopaths in magazine serials and dime novels from the first half of the 20th century, and bringing them to twisted life on film redefined crime drama around the world. Walk down these mean streets with us for this celebration of 19 sensational pulp stories that blasted their way to the screen.
