Host Gabriel Tyner catches up with Set Fire to the Stars writer/actor Celyn Jones, actress Maimie McCoy and producer Andy Evans on the red carpet opening night at the Miami Dade College Miami International Film Festival
In the 1950s, an aspiring poet’s ordered world is shattered when he embarks on a week-long retreat to save Dylan Thomas. Tale of Dylan Thomas’s drink-sodden first tour of America in 1950, where aspiring poet and academic John M Brinnin (Elijah Wood) struggles to keep his unkempt charge on a respectable leash. Fueled by booze, insecurity and egotistical self-pity, the Welsh legend alternately enthralls and appalls all who fall into his circle.
