Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

"Melodrama: Genre, Style and Sensibility" is designed as an accessible overview of one of the most popular genres at undergraduate Film Studies. The book identifies three distinct but connected concepts through which it is possible to make sense of melodrama; either as a genre, originating in European theatre of the 18th and 19th century, as a specific cinematic style, epitomised by the work of Douglas Sirk or as a sensibility that emerges in the context of specific texts, speaking to and reflecting the desires, concerns and anxieties of audiences. Films discussed include "All That Heaven Allows, Safe, Fear Eats the Soul, Black Narcissus, Suddenly Last Summer" and "Rebel Without a Cause," Each chapter includes overviews of key essays, analyses of significant and widely studied films and includes an annotated reading list.

Synopsis:

One of the most popular genres studied at undergraduate level in film studies.
