About the Film
Gwyneth Paltrow stars as the troubled poet, Sylvia Plath. The story begins during her university years in Cambridge, England where she meets and falls in love with Ted Hughes who would become the poet laureate of Great Britain. Plath’s delicate and emotionally burdened life is detailed through flashbacks of her childhood and scenes from her volatile marriage. A master of British accents, Paltrow excels at giving meaning to this boldly impassioned artist.
One of the most graceful and beautiful film of the year. – New York Observer
