Bear with me as this isn’t strictly book-related but…

Last month I read a fascinating book called Going Clear: Scientology, Hollywood and the Prison of Belief (by Lawrence Wright). While the Church of Scientology denies all claims made in the book, Wright has only shared what others have told him and he did an excellent job of showing both sides of the story.

Today I found out that Going Clear has been turned into a documentary by Alex Gibney that will be released on HBO in March. According to Vulture.com, the documentary “debuted at Sundance to a jam-packed overflow audience and a rousing standing ovation — not to mention the sight of fest volunteers forming a human chain around Gibney, Wright, and their subjects at the end of their post-screening Q&A, presumably as a safety precaution.”

For more, check out the full article on Vulture or this one on LAist. Before the documentary is released on HBO, check out the book – it’s well worth the read!
