The Diary on Screen
To coincide with the exhibition The Diary: Three Centuries of Private Lives, the Morgan is screening two films adapted from the diaries of famous historical figures.
The Story of Adele H.
(1975, 98 minutes)
Director: François Truffaut
Adapted from the real-life diaries of Victor Hugo's daughter (which are on view in the exhibition The Diary: Three Centuries of Private Lives), this film tells the story of Adele H., whose pursuit of a handsome and womanizing British lieutenant takes her across an ocean and eventually sparks her spiral into madness. Isabelle Adjani received an Oscar nomination for her portrayal of the title character in this haunting portrait of obsession and desire. Bruce Robinson, Sylvia Marriott, and Joseph Blatchley also star. Distributed by MGM Home Entertainment Inc.
