Good Afternoon All,
So I just posted a video for the trailer of the movie “The Monk”. It’s directed by Dominik Moll, based of the novel by Matthew G. Lewis; screenplay by Dominik Moll and Anne-Louise Trividic.
I was first introduced to this story while taking a Gothic Fiction Class and I must say for those that are unaware of Matthew G. Lewis’s novel, it is an excellent read. I recommend reading the novel before seeing the movie.
In theaters now, I have yet to have the opportunity to see it, but by the looks of the trailer it looks like an excellent story line and a movie worth seeing. Brief plot description: Ambrosio was abandoned at the doorsteps of a monastery, where he is raised by the Capucin Friars. Once an adult he becomes a well accomplished preacher, who’s words draw in crowds and brings him admiration from all that’s around him. But his world is about to be turned upside down, when a series of events begin to take place, with the help of the devil himself.
If you have seen the movie, please post a comment letting us know how it was and if its compares to the book.
Keep reading, keep writing, keep pushing, keep striving. VSB
