Varoufakis book to be made into a movie

Former finance minister Yanis Varoufakis launched the Greek edition of his latest book, “Adults in the Room,” at Technopolis in Athens on Monday. Greek-French film director Costa-Gavras, who is known for making films with overt political themes, announced his intention to bring Varoufakis's book to the big screen via a letter that was read out during the press conference.

According to the letter, which Varoufakis posted on his website, the Greek-French film director,, said he felt inspired to turn the book into a movie after being, “angered and enraged by the violence and indifference of the Eurogroup members, especially the German side, to the drama and unsustainable situation in which the people of Greece lived, and live.”
