Ecosse and Silverwood Films Involved in ‘On Green Dolphin Street’ Love Triangle

Written by Becoming Jane scribe Kevin Hood, Faulk’s tale is set in New York, Washington and a brief spell in Moscow, follows the love affair of Mary, an English rose, and Frank a Chicago journalist. Mary, who is married to diplomat Charlie, soon becomes torn between the love of these two men. A marriage drama with adultery set in the 1950’s reminds of Revolutionary Road, but this sounds slightly more ambitious – paralleling the conflicts of a love triangle with the inner (JFK vs. Nixon battle) and outer (Cold War) issues faced in the U.S. Faulks saw his Charlotte Gray made into a film, and the author recently penned a James Bond Ian Fleming novel (here’s our review).
