Introductory Paragraph (use or amend as desired):
Todd Field’s Academy Award nominated 2001 film In the Bedroom adopts Andre Dubus’ 1979 short story "Killings" for the big screen. Since Dubus’ story about a father seeking vengeance for his son’s death is only thirteen pages long, Field and co-screenwriter Robert Feistinger faced the challenge of fleshing out the original tale in order to become a 2 hour + motion picture.
