Greatly missed on TV screens, the nation’s favourite film critics Margaret Pomeranz and David Stratton reunite in this special conversation on Australian movie adaptations of books. The famously sparring duo settle back into their critics’ chairs to discuss and debate Neil Armfield’s Candy (starring Heath Ledger and Abbie Cornish), Baz Luhrmann’s The Great Gatsby, Simon Baker’s Breath (based on Tim Winton’s Miles Franklin Award–winning novel of the same name), Bruce Beresford’s Ladies in Black, Robert Connolly’s The Dry and Peter Weir’s classic Picnic at Hanging Rock. Discover which films Margaret and David believe did justice to the original text, bested the books or lost their lustre when transposed from page to screen.
