Deborah Moggach in Conversation with David Gritten, film writer and critic for the Daily Telegraph
£6.00, £5.00 (conc)
Author of sixteen novels including the best-selling Tulip Fever, Deborah Moggach is also a prolific screenwriter, relishing the contrast between the interior world of the novel and the conflict-driven life of drama. As well as adapting many of her own novels for TV she was BAFTA nominated for her screenplay of Pride and Prejudice, starring Keira Knightly. The current hit film The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel (screening at Berrington Hall on Friday 11 May) which she describes as “about outsourcing elderly Brits to India” is based on her 2004 novel These Foolish Things.
In the first ever BAFTA event in a church, Deborah will be talking to David Gritten, film writer and critic for the Daily Telegraph, about her colourful career, moving back and forth between the worlds of literature, television and Hollywood.
Deborah will be signing books, courtesy of Waterstones Hereford, in the library at the centre, housed in the church's belfry.
This event forms part of BAFTA’s UK-wide learning and events programme, giving audiences across the country access behind the screens of the film, TV and video games industries. For more information visit www.bafta.org
