Room and a Half

Poltory komnaty ili sentimentalnoe puteshestvie na rodinu

Directed by Andrey Khrzhanovskiy
Russia, 2009
Biography, Drama


In this unusual, original and surprisingly lyrical biopic, Russian poet Joseph Brodsky is forced into permanent exile in the U.S. in the early 1970s, but — in a flight of filmmaking fancy — secretly returns to his beloved homeland.
