The Human Stain
Festivals Top

The Human Stain is based on the novel by author Philip Roth, winner of the Pulitzer prize, set in 1998, when the USA was immersed in the Clinton-Lewinsky scandal. This is the tale of Coleman Silk, a master of deceipt and even reinvention throughout his life. While he was a promising university student, Coleman's first love Steena had destroyed herself for a secret. Years later, having become a prestigious professor, his career is ruined by false accusations. Now, caught up in a scandalous relationship with the mysterious Faunia, Coleman experiences erotic awakenings taking him back into the past. But with his resuscitated passion comes the threat of Faunia's ex-husband, obliging Coleman to show his real identity before it's too late.
Entered the world of cinema as co-screenwriter of Bonnie and Clyde (1967). He later wrote the screenplay for movies such as What's Up, Doc? (1972), The Late Show (1977) and Nobody's Fool (1994), in addition to collaborating on the script of Superman (1978). In 1972, he debuted as a director with Bad Company, followed, among other titles, by the Oscar-winning Kramer vs. Kramer (1979) and Places in the Heart (1984).
