Good writers captivate us so completely with their words, it’s easy to imagine that they must led very colorful lives – all the more so when they are given the big screen treatment.  Music adds an extra dimension to our conception of the Brontës in “Devotion” (Erich Wolfgang Korngold), Iris Murdoch in “Iris” (James Horner), the Bard of Avon in “Shakespeare in Love” (Stephen Warbeck), and Samuel Clemens in “The Adventures of Mark Twain” (Max Steiner).  Writers are such characters, aren’t they?  Everything’s writ large, this Saturday at 6 pm.
