John Irving On The Film Version Of The Hotel New Hampshire


Here is a link to a fascinating essay by author John Irving on Tony Richardson's adaptation of his novel THE HOTEL NEW HAMPSHIRE. It's a fascinating read, and it is great to hear Irving's own honest reactions to the film. For the most part his thoughts are positive with some reservations. I don't agree with his comments on Nastassja's performance, but admire his candor, and he doesn't display any of the spite so many of the film critics of the day did.

It sounds like he has mixed views on the film. He was his complaints with it, but he's also positive in parts about it as well.
