Mr. James

It's very hard to bring Henry James to the movie screen, let alone finish some of his books, as this article explains. I think we're overdue for a reconsideration of Jane Campion's The Portrait of a Lady, but for now here's an intriguing trailer for What Maisie Knew. I like the cast and the contemporary setting, and so it's time to head to the book (as well as Colm Toibin's The Master, in my to-read pile).
