Celluloid Friends: Cinematic Quakers, Real and Imagined (1922-2012)
Author: David N. Butterworth
Representations of Quakers and their communities as rendered on film--commercial "Hollywood" film--are few and far between. In fact, one would be hard pressed to find more than one or two films per decade (the 1930s, for example, appear to be entirely devoid of filmed Friends). Longtime movie buff and sometime film critic David Butterworth sets out to explore cinematic representations of members of the Religious Society of Friends through full-length and capsule reviews.
