Description

The screenwriters featured are: Rupert Walters - "Restoration"; Lee Hall - "Billy Elliot"; Richard Curtis - "Notting Hill", "Four Weddings", "Bridget Jones", "The Tall Guy", "Blackadder"; Frank Cottrell-Boyce - "Welcome to Sarajevo"; Neal Purvis and Robert Wade - "The World is Not Enough"; Shawn Slovo - Captain Correlli's "Mandolin"; William Boyd - "Chaplin"; Hossein Amini - "The Wings of the Dove"; and, Simon Beaufoy - "The Full Monty". From the editor of "Smoking In Bed: Conversations with Bruce Robinson", praised by playwright David Hare as 'the most purely likeable book about cinema I have ever read' ("Guardian", Books of the Year), comes the first ever anthology of interviews with British screenwriters. Talking about their work at home and in Hollywood, some giving in-depth interviews for the first time, are ten of the top names in British screenwriting. Lively and funny, challenging and revealing, this series of exclusive interviews with the unsung heroes of contemporary British cinema provides a unique behind-the-scenes look at the movie business, essential for wannabe writers, industry insiders and film fans alike.show more
