Sylvia plath: life in­side the bell Jar

9pm BBC2

Soaplife - - Must See Tv -

Most lit­er­ary clas­sics have been adapted for TV or the big screen, but there are a few that have been deemed ‘un­filmable’ and The Bell Jar by Sylvia Plath is one of them.

That said, a rare at­tempt to bring the book to life is in the off­ing, with the Twi­light saga’s Dakota Fan­ning in the lead role. So here’s a timely look at the semi-au­to­bi­o­graph­i­cal novel about a woman’s de­scent into men­tal ill­ness, which has been read by lit­er­a­ture stu­dents and angst-rid­den teens the world over.

It fea­tures ex­cerpts from the book, read by Mag­gie Gyl­len­haal.
