Kirsten Dunst to Direct Sylvia Plath’s The Bell Jar
Kirsten Dunst is to make her silver screen directorial debut with an adaption of Sylvia Plath’s The Bell Jar.
If this hasn’t already got you excited, we can also let you know that the fabulous Dakota Fanning has been announced as the lead role of Esther Greenwood. We cannot wait to see what Dunst can do when sat behind the camera.
If you aren’t already familiar with Plath’s book, we’d definitely recommend getting your hands on a copy of The Bell Jar before watching the film. The classic novel questions socially acceptable identity and examines protagonist’s Esther's quest to forge her own identity to be herself as a woman and not what is expected of her by society. Make sure to pick up a copy of this instant modern day classic.
