After a difficult childhood marred by cases of alcoholism and suicide in the family, Demi Moore left behind her life in a New Mexico trailer park in pursuit of the bright lights of Tinseltown. Three decades and three husbands later, Moore's name is known the world over, but her face is rarely seen anymore. So what happened? She became a teen icon in the '80s, and by the '90s was the most sought after woman in Hollywood. Then a series of unfortunate career moves — The Scarlet Letter , anyone?
This will not do. It is like taking up the story of Salome after she has put the veils back on. Another problem is that there is not much action in Nathaniel Hawthorne's novel, except inside the minds and souls of the characters. A third is that the Rev. Dimmesdale, who impregnates poor Hester, is the leader of the local hypocrites who persecute her.
