A Poet in New York

Format
Video; Streaming Video; Online
Summary
Marking the centenary on 27 October 2014 of Dylan Thomas's birth, this drama written by acclaimed screenwriter Andrew Davies, explores the final days of this famous poet, known for his wild, hard-drinking lifestyle as well as his brilliance. The film begins as Thomas arrives in New York where he planned to rehearse, write and party, before travelling to Hollywood to write an opera with the equally famous composer Stravinsky. But what might have been a triumphant new path in his career turned into a requiem for a man whose life had spiralled out of control and Thomas died in a smog-ridden New York in 1953 at the age of just 39. Moving between the present in New York and the poet's past in Wales, this drama explores how Dylan Thomas's experiences had made his life virtually untenable and examines the part his destructive personality played in his own demise.
