Abstract(s)This essay focuses on two films by British director Michael Winterbottom, The Claim (2000) and Trishna (2011), which, notwithstanding the titles, are both based on Thomas Hardy’s novels: the first, is based on Hardy’s The Mayor of Casterbridge (1886) and the second on Tess of the d’Urbervilles (1891). The main interest of focusing on these two films is related to the fact that they adapt Thomas Hardy’s stories into completely different locations and historical times. I will be arguing that these adaptations are fruitful examples of what we can call transcultural and transhistorical adaptations in the context of contemporary transnational/ global cinema.
