Notes about The Stone Angel


Quote about The Stone Angel

"Although pride is certainly not absent from [Kari] Skogland's film [The Stone Angel], it is not present to the degree or with the same effect that it is in the novel, thereby fundamentally impacting the presentation and resolution of the theme explored in its source text."
-- Carmela Coccimiglio (source)
