Storyline

Two feisty, free-spirited women are connected by the brilliant, charismatic poet who loves them both. The passion and pathos of legendary poet Dylan Thomas is told through the lives of two extraordinary women. Vera Phillips and Dylan were teenage loves; fast forward ten years and the two reconnect in London. She's working as a singer whilst he's churning out scripts for government propaganda films and living off the last in a long line of infatuated women. The two former lovers feel the thunderbolt once more, but Thomas is now married to the adventurous Caitlin. Despite their love-rival status, the women form a surprising friendship. Caitlin indulges in her own infidelities, and recognises a similar adventurous spirit in her husband. But she knows his connection with Vera is something different, not to mention dangerous. Romantic turmoil continues in Vera's life. She marries her devoted admirer William Killick, but she can't deny the chemistry between herself and Dylan, nor does she ... Written by paul@keiraweb.com

Trivia

Back in 1969, Richard Harris was setting up a project based on the same story at Paramount. He would have played Dylan Thomas while Faye Dunaway would have been Caitlyn. See more »

Goofs

When William Killick boards his transportation plane to Greece the C-47 Dakota shows (incorrectly) black and white "D-Day stripes" on fuselage and left wing. In the stock footage (probably ex-RCAF ZA947 operated by the "Battle of Britain Memorial Flight") used for the subsequent takeoff shot the C-47 has no markings at all neither on wings nor the fuselage's underbelly.

Quotes

Dylan Thomas: I wouldn't like to get on the wrong side of you.
William Killick: Well, see you don't, then.

Give it a go..
8 July 2008 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

So keira knightly is in it...So automatically we compare this film to attonement. Aside rom the fact that this film is also wartime and her appearance is uncanning, these films are totally different.

The Actors work well, i think one good thing is there is no memorable person, they are a team.

If you want a film where things happen, then id advise another as the story of this film is about human interaction and their physche's damaged by their experiences and how their lives are intertwined.

This film have genuine interaction, perfect pause moments that make you hold your breath. No its not exciting, but it is gripping if you can empathise with these characters. At moments i wondered if this film may have been better as a theatrical play rather than a movie. We expect a lot from movies as everything is possible, and yet with theatre we allow for interaction and rely on belief.

There are things wrong with it if your looking for a blockbuster, if you look for nothing and allow the film to take you in, move you, allow yourself to forget these stars, and not to judge them as actors but let them become people, you will truly ind yourself moved.

GO ON!! give it a go!
