Set Fire to the Stars

"Gorgeous, evocative and well performed." - Los Angeles Times


Celebrating Dylan Thomas' centenary, this intriguing semi-biographical drama - beautifully shot in black-and-white - focusses on a week in the life of the great poet as he prepares for a series of performed readings in the US. Featuring stellar performances from co-writer Celyn Jones as Thomas and Elijah Wood as John Malcolm Brinnin, and an accomplished original score by Gruff Rhys (Super Furry Animals), this is a playful, humourous and moving snapshot of one of the world's most beloved poets.
