Boyd’s RESTLESS On Screen

Speaking of William Boyd, who is currently at work on a new James Bond novel, his 2006 spy novel, Restless, has been made into a two-part series which concludes on the Sundance Channel tomorrow. Charlotte Rampling has been nominated for a Screen Actors Guild Award for her starring role.

Unfortunately, Salon writes that she is “the only great thing about Restlesss … But sometimes seeing Charlotte Rampling holding an outsize firearm like she intends to use it is good enough.” The NYT indicates viewers would be better off reading the book, saying that the producers “have turned an entertaining and suspenseful novel into a surprisingly ordinary television production.”

Originally published in 2006, Restless is also available as a tie-in:
