Author Sam Wasson joins JBFC Board President Janet Maslin for a look at his new book The Path to Paradise – A Francis Ford Coppola Story. With a screening of Coppola’s 1974 mystery thriller The Conversation.
Lonely wiretapping expert and devout Catholic Harry Caul (Gene Hackman) is hired to record a seemingly innocuous conversation in San Francisco’s Union Square between two lovers. Upon re-hearing the tapes, however, Caul believes he may be putting the couple in danger if he turns the material over to his client (Robert Duvall). But what one hears can ultimately turn out to be quite different from what was actually recorded.
Copies of The Path to Paradise – A Francis Ford Coppola Story will be available for purchase after the screening, courtesy of The Village Bookstore.
Presented in partnership with the Bedford Playhouse.
Sam Wasson will be in conversation with Janet Maslin on December 10th in Bedford following a screening of Apocalypse Now.
