Midnight's Children by Salman Rushdie: July 2012 Book to Film Club Reading
Happy July! With the turning of the month it's time to look at our July 2012 reading selection:
Midnight's Children by Salman Rushdie
I know very little about this one other than it's got both historical elements and magical realism, and spans the time from when India gained independence from England. I'm quite curious about it and also really excited as it will be our first film adaptation that's directed by a woman. I'm a little surprized that took over a year but we keep covering more ground each month with the Book to Film Club.
The film version of Midnight's Children is going to be adapted by Salman Rushdie himself and will be directed by Deepa Mehta (Earth, Water, Fire, Bollywood/Hollywood), and will star Satya Bhabha, Shahana Goswami, Rajat Kapoor and Shabana Azmi.
The film Midnight's Children is scheduled to be released October 26, 2012.
