set fire to the stars

One actor that I have always had great respect for is Elijah Wood. Sure, he started out as a whiny hobbit but since then he has taken on pretty much every genre (to degrees of success) which takes guts and a thirst for acting. The last movie I saw him in was Women in Blacka horror movie I really enjoyed. [Editor’s note: Nick doesn’t know his Elijah Wood’s from his Daniel Radcliffe’s and has been punished appropriately] Still it’s nice to see him in something a little more down to earth.

Setting Fire to the Stars tells the story of John Malcolm Brinnin who brought famous alcoholic poet Dylan Thomas to the States in 1950. Celyn Jones (Castles in the Sky) plays the eccentric poet who has a close and turbulent relationship with Malcolm in a film that looks to be half biopic, half imagined. Jones also co-wrote the script with director Andy Goddard (Downtown Abbey) in a movie that has been getting rave reviews from various news outlets (four stars ‘Dynamic and truly electric performances from Elijah Wood and Celyn Jones’ – Movie review World).

The movie stars Elijah Wood, Celyn Jones, Kelly Reilly,  Steven Mackintosh, Shirley Henderson and is directed by Andy Goddard.
