The Reilly Arts Center, Ocala’s Marion Theatre, and the Marion County Literacy Council are delighted to present: Naughty Adaptation: A series about how highbrow texts become irreverent films
Join R.J. Jenkins for a spirited talk about how one of western civilization’s most celebrated stories – Homer’s epic poem, The Odyssey – inspired the romping crime dramedy O Brother, Where Art Thou? Then… grab a drink and enjoy the film!
Upcoming films in the Naughty Adaptation series include:
- Cruel Intentions, adaptation of Les liaisons dangereuses (1782) by Pierre Choderlos de Laclos
- Clueless, adaptation of Emma (1815) by Jane Austen
- 10 Things I Hate About You, adaptation of The Taming of the Shrew (1590-92) by William Shakespeare
