Scorsese on his “The Age of Innocence” (1993)

Age of Innocence DVD coverShould we decide to view Martin Scorsese’s excellent film together, or should anyone chose to look at it separately, a 1993 interview with the director by critic Roger Ebert will provide some interesting insights.  Ebert first met Scorsese in 1967 when they were students together, so their discussion is relaxed and chatty as well as informative.

While I find that the movie exhibits some of the usual problems with screen adaptations, Scorsese embraces Wharton’s writing with such sensitivity and understanding that the film is often praised as one of the most successful unions of written and visual language even created.
