Two new films adapted from the theater

Two films adapted from the theater are set to open in Chicago. “A Master Builder,” the filmed play by Henrik Ibsen, directed by Jonathan Demme, opens at the Gene Siskel Film Center this week. Roman Polanski has also adapted Davis Ives’ play “A Venus in Fur.” Milos Stehlik joins us to tell us whether either director has succeeded in taking the theatre to the big screen.
