Summary, etc.:
Based on true events, Elijah Wood stars as John Malcolm Brinnin, the New York academic who brought Dylan Thomas to America. Actor/co-writer Celyn Jones plays the volatile celebrity poet - tormented by anonymity, alcohol and the abyss - who scandalized the Manhattan literati of the Fifties and challenged Brinnin's hero worship of his work. Part literary biopic and - shot in cut-glass black-and-white - part love-letter to the American B-movies of the Forties and Fifties, Andy Goddard's debut feature is both a character driven chamber piece and a cautionary tale about the fly trap of meeting your heroes.
