Beautiful, interesting, incredible cinema.
An aspiring poet in 1950s New York has his ordered world shaken when he embarks on a week-long retreat to save his hell raising hero, Dylan Thomas.
3-3.5/5. Pretty. Gay-ish. Melancholic.
I doubt we'll see a finer Dylan than Tom Hollander in Aisling Walsh's A Poet In New York.
Tobey Maguire is too old for roles such as this
Elijah Wood as Elijah Wood just reading Dylan Thomas for 97 minutes would have been fresher (and delightful!).
So pretty to look at.
