Harold Pinter on Sleuth

In The New York Times, Sarah Lyall talks to Harold Pinter about his approach to writing and his screenplay for the remake of Sleuth (opening in the UK on 23 November), based on the play by Anthony Shaffer.
Mr. Pinter acknowledged that his plays — full of infidelity, cruelty, inhumanity, the lot — seem at odds with his domestic contentment.

“How can you write a happy play?” he said. “Drama is about conflict and general degrees of perturbation, disarray. I’ve never been able to write a happy play, but I’ve been able to enjoy a happy life.”
