Have you seen this news about the Bell Jar becoming a movie with Dakota Fanning and Kirsten Dunst?

Ariel  (lamot_amant) This is the first I've heard of it.

I'm a bit wary about it. Either the nuance will come across in the writing and it will be as powerful as the book or it will lean towards the recurrent romanticizing shtick and not do the story justice. I haven't seen anything that's been directed by Dunst but her short Bastard seemed to get decent reviews. I don't know anything about her cowriter Nellie Kim, either. So I'm sticking with the complete hit or miss opinion for now.

Laura Ellis | 6 comments I am hoping it will be good. I have a bit of a fascination with sylvia Plath but not a big fan of Dunst.
