The book Madame Sousatzka was also made into a British drama film in 1988 directed by John Schlesinger, with a screenplay by Ruth Prawer Jhabvala. It is based upon the novel of the same name by Bernice Rubens and starred Shirley MacLaine as “Madame Sousatzka.”

Based on the original novel Madame Sousatzka, written by Bernice Rubens, Sousatzka is set in London, England in 1982 and tells the story of a musical prodigy torn between two powerful women from vastly different worlds: his mother, a political refugee from South Africa and his piano teacher, a brilliant eccentric with a shattered past. These two proud, iconoclastic women must ultimately cross cultural and racial divides to find common ground, or else jeopardize the young musician’s destiny. Sousatzka, with its inspirational story of art and music as a tool for change and healing, could not be a more prescient response to the current global attitude towards refugees.
