ABOUT THE FILM

Set Fire to the Stars

Based on John M Brinnin’s account of his hell-raising hero, Dylan Thomas’, first visit to New York in 1950, SET FIRE TO THE STARS is the feature debut of director Andy Goddard (Downton Abbey, Once Upon A Time) and stars Elijah Wood (Lord Of The Rings), Celyn Jones (Castles In The Sky/Above Suspicion), Kelly Reilly (Sherlock Holmes, Flight), Stephen Mackintosh (The Sweeney, Kick-Ass 2) and Shirley Henderson (Bridget Jones, Filth). In 1950, John M Brinnin invited the highly acclaimed and infamous Welshman Dylan Thomas to New York for a series of poetry readings, touring around the most prestigious college campuses of the United States. Ignoring persistent rumours of Thomas’ frivolities back home, Brinnin has his hands full when the poet arrives on US shores. In a desperate attempt to keep him sober, Brinnin takes Thomas to his family retreat in the woods of Connecticut. But even in the middle of nowhere, Thomas finds an audience for his art, his passion, love and aggression.
