Goofs

When William and Dorothy Wordsworth arrive at Coleridge's cottage and they go in search of Sarah Coleridge, the baby, Hartley is sitting on Sarah's lap with bare feet. When Sam introduces the Wordsworths to the baby a second later, he is wearing red boots/booties. See more »

Quotes

[first lines]
Samuel Taylor Coleridge: Like one that on a lonesome road doth walk in fear and dread, and having once turned 'roud walks on and turns no more his head, because he knows a frightful fiend doth close behind him tred. 'Tis a strange place this limbo, not a place yet named so.

Crazy Credits

The credits start with one letter, which becomes the name of the person involved. They don't seem to make any sense, but most are letters incorporated in the word PANDAEMONIUM (the last Text before the Cast Listing starts). See more »

Very Enjoyable Film
5 April 2002 | by (Minneapolis) – See all my reviews

I saw the movie on DVD and really enjoyed it. I guess I thought Wordsworth and Coleridge were more friendly than this (and maybe they were) in reality. The film sure is biased towards Coleridge. Wordsworth comes off very badly--he gives up on his revolutionary principles, marries a shrewish wife, and seems only interested in how he will be viewed by posterity. Wordsworth goes to visit Coleridge and to collaborate with him, but can't seem to put a single word to paper. Then, suddenly, _Lyrical Ballads_ is finished and published and filled with Wordsworth's poetry!

The performances are excellent, particularly Linus Roache as Coleridge and Emily Woof as Dorothy Wordsworth. I was reminded of a similar film, _Haunted Summer_, which portrays the meeting of Percy Shelley and Lord Byron. The film is a bit odd at times, with jet trails moving across the skies of the 18th century, but it does a great job of getting at the creative impulse, showing the feverish bouts of imagination that gave rise to Coleridge's _Rime of the Ancient Mariner_ and the fragment _Kubla Khan_ (interesting that it shows an interruption by Wordsworth as the cause of STC losing his train of thought). Also, the scene with frost forming on the window while Coleridge cares for his son Hartley, leading to one of his more memorable early poems, is a standout. This film is well worth your time and isn't the boring, stodgy take on biography that some might be fearing.
