'Henry & June' co-writer dies

10 December 2009 2:00 PM, PST | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

Rose Kaufman, who with her husband Philip Kaufman co-wrote "Henry & June," the first Nc-17 rated film, died Dec. 7 at her San Francisco home after a four-year battle with cancer. She was 70.

Survivors include her husband of 51 years, who also directed "Henry & June," and their son Peter, who produced the drama.

Kaufman began her screenwriting career in the early 1970s after Peter mentioned to her that Richard Price's novel "The Wanderers" would make a good movie. The Kaufmans wrote a screenplay based on the book, and Philip directed the 1979 film.

Years later, the couple collaborated on the groundbreaking "Henry & June," a 1990 adaptation of Anais Nin's memoir of her love affair with writer Henry Miller and his wife, June. The film took advantage of the MPAA ratings system's adults-only rating introduced that year and was one of the rare studio releases to have gone out with an Nc-17.
