In Bed with Ulysses

IN BED WITH ULYSSES is a documentary about James Joyce and the writing, publishing and censoring of his masterpiece. ULYSSES is widely acknowledged as one of the greatest and certainly the most controversial novel of the modern era.

The readings feature acclaimed actress Kathleen Chalfant (Wit, Angels in America) as Molly Bloom, whose soliloquy is regarded as one the highlights of 20th century literature (excerpted in the documentary).
