Fiction, Film and Fun: Cloud Atlas

Thursday, July 18, 2013  
1:00 PM - 4:00 PM

Join CCAC's Jeanne Bergad to discuss Cloud Atlas by David Mitchell. Mitchell’s adventurous 2004 novel collects six distinct stories that travel back and forth in time, from the 19th century to a dystopian future. The stories are nested together, with each one connecting in some way to the story that preceded it. The 2012 film adaptation was directed by Tom Tykwer, Andy Wachowski and Lana Wachowski. The film featured an ensemble cast including Tom Hanks, Halle Berry, Jim Broadbent, Hugo Weaving, Susan Sarandon, Hugh Grant and each actor played multiple roles in the film.
