Engaging with James Franco

In this short, smart interview from Cannes, James gives us insight into his inspiration for bringing Faulkner’s literary masterpiece to the screen. Given that a recent study performed by the New School for Social Research suggests that readers may benefit more from electing to read literary fiction over popular fiction, as the former seems to instill a better understanding of human emotion, I think the same benefits could be said to be true for ‘literary film’. Though I’ve yet to see the whole movie, what I’ve seen so far engages my senses in the best possible way!

    Have to say, I agree…. I think ‘literary’ films engage our thinking and creativity, much like literature. I look forward to seeing this film!
