Read It / Watch It - Great Expectations (1997)
This modern-dress version starring Ethan Hawke, Gwyneth Paltrow, Robert DeNiro, and Chris Cooper is the centerpiece of a Read It / Watch It discussion group.
Leading the discussion is the Library’s Kaite Stover, a “book doctor” on KCUR-FM’s Up to Date show. Participants are encouraged (but not required) to read the source novel before attending the film screening.
This event is co-sponsored by Kansas City Repertory Theatre, the Unicorn Theatre, and the Kansas City Actors Theatre.
