Storyline

The Yellow Wallpaper (Motion Picture) is an "Origins Myth"... rather than a direct adaptation of the famous Charlotte Perkins Gilman story. Drawing from the original short story and a number of Gilmans' other gothic works (The Giant Wisteria, The Unwatched Door, etc.), The Yellow Wallpaper is an original narrative of events that unfold around the actual writing of "The Yellow Wallpaper" short story. After a devastating fire, Charlotte and John rent a countryside house and attempt to start life over, though Charlotte, upon seeing visions of her deceased daughter, retreats to the house's attic and pulls away from her husband and sister. Written by Max Visconti

Interesting on many levels of cinema
15 August 2011 | by See all my reviews

I was lucky enough because of my academic circles on the east coast to be invited to this picture. I had read this story well over 15 years ago and remembered the telling of it vividly. Although this picture slants from its original, it expounds on the possibilities of the mind. Is that not the responsibility of cinema? In respect and adoration of originality this picture breathes a life of its own. Refreshing in today's grinder of force fed films. I was thrilled that the director and producers had the courage to turn a very short story into a picture about generations for generations. This is an edge of your seat picture, dare I mention a love story. Go see it when the opportunity arises.
