Storyline

Agee is the story of James Agee, one of the most talented writers of our time. A quintessentially American writer, James Agee was driven by passions for work, friends, films, and ideas. Agee established a reputation as both a warm-hearted genius and as "a sovereign prince of the English language." In his short, luminous career, James Agee worked as poet, journalist, film critic, screenwriter and Pulitzer Prize-winning novelist whose works include Let Us Now Praise Famous Men, The African Queen, A Death in the Family and Agee on Film. Agee's fascinating story is told here by those who knew him best, including John Huston, Walker Evans, Robert Fitzgerald, Dwight MacDonald, Father James Flye, and Agee's three wives. And of course, the film features the words of James Agee. Written by Ross Spears
