The success of Freedomland and Clockers has established Richard Price as one of America’s most accomplished novelists. Critics have praised both his uncanny ear for the cadences and pitch of dialogue and his insight into the deeper recesses of the American soul.
Bringing these gifts to the art of filmmaking, Price has also emerged as one of our most talented screenwriters. This collection of his three best-known screenplays displays the full range of his abilities.
Introduced with a revealing interview of Price by the critic Neal Gabler, this volume includes Price’s scripts for: The Color of Money (1986), which starred Paul Newman and Tom Cruise, and received an Academy Award nomination for best screenplay; Sea of Love (1989), which starred Al Pacino and Ellen Barkin; and Night and the City (1992), which starred Robert De Niro and Jessica Lange, and again earned Price many rave reviews.
