Proved Innocent: The Story of Gerry Conlon of the Guildford Four (Gerry Conlon) – Adapted: Books to Movies

Love books? Love movies? Hosts Marisa Serafini and Phil Svitek love them both too… equally. So they decided to marry their love of both into a monthly dedicated series where they discuss books that have been adapted into movies.

This month they chose Gerry Conlon’s Proved Innocent, an autobiography about one of four innocent people convicted of a terrorist bombing in Guildford, England, that tells of the miscarriage of justice that resulted in imprisonment for him and members of his family, including his father. It describes the struggle to clear his name.

A movie starring Daniel Day-Lewis was released in 1993 putting to screen Conlon’s struggles. It received critical and box office success.

Marisa and Phil give historical context to the book, talk about Conlon’s inspiration for writing it, plot points and then transition into discussing the adapted version.
