For Screen and Country – The Go-Between (2015)
Written by Brendan Wahl on July 1, 2019
For the month of July, Brendan and Jason explore movies that are somehow connected to the ones they’ve previously covered on the BFI Top 100. And now… for something completely similar…
First on the docket is the 2015 BBC television remake of The Go-Between (the 1971 original was #57 on the list). The guys discuss the differences and similarities between both works including cutting one character completely out of the remake, removing subtlety for more overt explanations and… why yes, there is something a little bit creepy about Vanessa Redgrave being in this movie.
Next week: Brendan and Jason continue this July mini-series with Kenneth Branagh’s 1989 version of Henry V (the 1944 film was #17 on the list).
