The Canadian short-story writer today became just the 13th woman to win the Nobel Prize for literature. Hollywood hasn’t done much with Alice Munro’s vast catalog, but her short “The Bear Came Over The Mountain” was adapted and directed by Sarah Polley as Away From Her, which starred Julie Christie and Gordon Pinsent and debuted at Toronto in 2006. It landed two Oscar noms: one for Christie and one for Polley’s screenplay.
