T.S. Eliot's 'Prufrock' on Film

Below is a stellar treatment by filmmaker Laura Scrivano of T.S. Eliot's "The Love Song of J. Alfred Prufrock". Scrivano describes her film, one in a series of shorts titled The Passion, as "an adaptation, an interpretation" of the poem.

Filmed in New York City, the videopoem stars Australian stage, film, and television actor Daniel Henshall.

Full Text of Poem (The poem can be found in T.S. Eliot Collected Poems 1909-1963 , Centenary Edition, 1963.)
