Based on true events, Elijah Wood stars as John Malcolm Brinnin, the New York academic who brought Dylan Thomas to America. Actor/co- writer Celyn Jones plays the volatile celebrity poet - tormented by anonymity, alcohol and the abyss - who scandalized the Manhattan literati of the Fifties and challenged Brinnins hero worship of his work. In the face of the Welsh poets wilder excesses in the Big Apple - angel, beast and madman - John has no choice but to hijack Dylan to a private retreat to get him ready for America. The days and nights that follow will change his life forever. Part literary biopic and - shot in cut-glass black- and-white - part love-letter to the American B-movies of the Forties and Fifties, Andy Goddards debut feature is both a character driven chamber piece and a cautionary tale about the fly trap of meeting your heroes.
