As I shared in last week’s post, the bridge has already taken a role in several television shows and movies. This week, preparing a post for my other site Chapter1-Take1 where I cover the world of book to movie adaptations, I discovered the bridge making another onscreen appearance.
The Millennium Bridge can be seen in the new screen adaptation of Julian Barnes’ Man Booker Prize-winning novel, The Sense of An Ending starring a dazzling cast of British stars, old and young, Jim Broadbent, Charlotte Rampling, Emily Mortimer, Joe Alwyn, Billy Howle, Michelle Dockery and Freya Mavor.
Let me know what you think of the trailer ... and don’t forget to watch for the bridge.
I’m currently reading the short 118 page book on my Nook, despite its brevity, Barnes’ novel is full of ideas about time and memory and the re-writing of our personal histories. Fascinating stuff for those of us who have a few years under our belts.
I wrote a bit about the novel over on Chapter1-Take1 if you’re interested. Hoping to get into the theater this weekend to see it but it’s my hubby’s bday and to be honest, the movie is much more my cup of tea than his.
