“Genius is a terrible thing.” Caitlin Thomas was a dancer, writer and woman behind the famous Welsh poet, Dylan Thomas. She partied as hard as him, advised him, loved him, kept him sober enough to write and brought up their family on no money, finally surviving his early death. Very little is written about Caitlin, her role in their legend or her recovery, and most portrayals are laughably inaccurate. This is Caitlin’s lyrical version of her life with Dylan, adapted from a one woman play written by Welsh poet Phil Bowen. The film has won best director, best actress and best musical score and nominated for over 20 awards. It is shot in the beautiful town of Laugharne in Wales and breaks many traditional film conventions. The film stars Sally George (recently in the West End and National Theatre Show – People Places and Things) as Caitlin and Griff Rhys Jones (the renowned actor and comedian), as the voice of Dylan Thomas.Read More
