EPISODE 3: Advocaat and Gabrielle Martin on The Shining

 

When Jack Torrence spills his Advocaat, he takes a deeper step into the terrifying mystery of the Overlook Hotel. This is the inspiration behind Episode 3 of Speak Easy, where Keith will be speaking about adaptations with Gabrielle Martin, film enthusiast and horror connoisseur. On one hand we have a best seller book turned into a classic Kubrick horror film, and on the other we have an an egg liqueur of the Netherlands based on an avocado drink invented in Brazil. What is gained and what is lost in adaptations? Tune in for a delicious conversation!
