Product Description

In the bohemian underground of World War II London, a stirring love story ignites among legendary poet Dylan Thomas (Matthew Rhys, TV's Brothers and Sisters) and the two extraordinary women who inspire him. Sienna Miller (Casanova) is Caitlin, Thomas' free-spirited wife, while Keira Knightley (Atonement) is Vera, the long-lost teenage sweetheart who later reconnects with Thomas. Despite their romantic rivalry, the two women form a surprisingly close bond. The trio is unusually blissful until Vera's husband, a handsome soldier (Cillian Murphy, Girl with a Pearl Earring), sends their uninhibited lives spiraling out of control.

Stylish and strangely remote, The Edge of Love salutes two women who made a significant impact on poet Dylan Thomas in the 1940s. Married to restless Irish lass Caitlin (Sienna Miller), who favors revealing outfits, Dylan (Welsh actor Matthew Rhys, Brothers and Sisters) still pines for his childhood sweetheart, torch singer Vera Phillips (Keira Knightley, who does her own singing and does it well). Vera feels the same, but as Dylan isn't available she accepts a proposal from Captain William Killick (Cillian Murphy), a persistent British suitor. To Dylan, Vera is heavenly and Caitlin is earthly--and he can't see living without either one (the Thomases have an open marriage). While William is stationed in Greece, the trio, plus two children, share neighboring cottages in Wales, live off William's paychecks, and smoke every cigarette they can find, but when William returns, penniless and depressed, things start to fall apart. An act of violence, followed by a cruel betrayal, puts an end to their idyll for good. Since the 1990s, the poet-during-wartime picture has become a genre unto itself, and John Maybury's third feature bears comparison with Regeneration and Pandaemonium, while also serving as a literary companion to Love Is the Devil, Maybury's feverish portrait of painter Francis Bacon (Knightley's mother, Sharman Macdonald, wrote the script). If Sienna's Irish accent is barely detectable, the same goes for Keira's Welsh warble, but the women otherwise form a believable bond--even if the men pale in comparison. --Kathleen C. Fennessy
