In Bed With Ulysses @ Gene Siskel Film Center

Chicago premiere!


2012, Alan Adelson and Kate Taverna, USA, 80 min.

“Lets fresh air into Ulysses like a gust from the Irish sea.”
—Andy Webster, The New York Times

The story behind James Joyce’s monumental novel is a saga that rivals fiction in its wild and woolly detail. Filmmakers Adelson and Taverna blend a review of pertinent historical events, including Limerick’s 1904 anti-Jewish riots, with an engaging account of the highlights of Joyce’s life, including his courtship of the earthy Nora Barnacle, his checkered career as a husband, the couple’s wandering life across Europe, and the scandals provoked by “Ulysses.” Actors including Kathleen Chalfant read evocatively from the novel, and Irish novelist Edna O’Brien and National Book Award winner Colum McCann provide insight.

    Sorry to hear it sold out on some of you. Who would've thought Ulysses would be so popular? Anyway, I hope we'll get to see you at future Meetups.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
