Abstract

The following article uses as its source material interviews with the director and screenwriter Anthony Minghella which I carried out between 2003 and 2006. Minghella approached the adaptation of a novel in a particular way and I would contend he adapted autobiographical memories in the same way he adapted novels. In this article I will consider how Minghella drew on his memories both of the texts he adapted and his autobiographical memories in order to create screenplays.
