'THE GALAPAGOS AFFAIR'
A TRUE STORY THAT KEEPS MYSTIFYING INVESTIGATORS
Your last period set project this week arrives from Red Joan producer Ivan Mactaggart who is joining with scribe William Boyd on adapting
John Treherne's book THE GALAPAGOS AFFAIR into a movie. Set in the late 1920s and based on a true story, the storu revolves around German doctor Friedrich Ritter and his patient, Dore Strauch, as they leave their spouses to pursue a utopian dream on the deserted Galapagos island of Floreana.
Their peace and solitude is disrupted by the arrival of the glamorous ‘Baroness’ Eloise Wagner de Bosquet and her two young lovers. Disturbed by the Baroness, Friedrich and Dore’s island paradise gradually descends in a spiral of jealousy, resentment, violence and eventually murder.

Fascinating true story on a fascinating tropical island! It reminds somehow of the unsolved mysteries of the Bermuda Triangle.ReplyDelete
The movie is, no doubt, going to be a treat.
Hope they do an interesting casting.Delete
