Susan Minot and Michael Cunningham have adapted Minot's beloved 1998 novel Evening into Evening. Directed by Lajos Koltai Evening [US, 2007; 120m] stars Claire Danes, Toni Collette and Vanessa Redgrave. The film is an exquisite memory piece, as well as a story of a mother and her daughters and the defining moment of connection between them.
Susan Minot and Michael Cunningham, two of the most gifted figures in modern literature and among the most heralded, have been on both sides of the film adaptation process––Cunningham has shepherded one of his own novels to the screen (A Home at the End of the World) and seen another one adapted (The Hours, by David Hare), while Minot collaborated with Bernardo Bertolucci on the original screenplay for his 1996 film Stealing Beauty.
