The screenplays of award-winning playwright John Patrick Shanley have earned him a reputation as a gifted writer with a great range and imagination. His movies Moonstruck, Five Corners, and Joe Versus the Volcano have starred such Hollywood luminaries as Cher--who took home an Oscar for her performance in Moonstruck--Nicolas Cage, Jodie Foster, John Turturro, Meg Ryan, and Tom Hanks. This collection showcases Shanley's talent for creating dialogue that is true to his characters and his ability to tell their stories in eccentric and intensely humorous situations.

Opera can reveal something fundamental about a film, and film can do the same for an opera, argues Marcia J. Citron. Structured by the categories of Style, Subjectivity, and Desire, this volume advances our understanding of the aesthetics of the opera/film encounter. Case studies of a diverse array of important repertoire including mainstream film, opera-film, and postmodernist pastiche are presented. Citron uses Werner Wolf's theory of intermediality to probe the roles of opera and film when they combine. The book also refines and expands film-music functions, and details the impact of an opera's musical style on the meaning of a film. Drawing on cinematic traditions of Hollywood, France, and Britain, the study explores Coppola's Godfather trilogy, Jewison's Moonstruck, Nichols's Closer, Chabrol's La Cérémonie, Schlesinger's Sunday, Bloody Sunday, Boyd's Aria, and Ponnelle's opera-films.
