    Set Fire To The Stars

    The film follows the effort of literary professor John Brinnin when bringing Welsh poet Dylan Thomas to perform in New York. After a week helping Dylan to stay away from alcohol, John realizes how much he wants to protect his friend instead of his career as first thought. Dylan also teaches John the lesson about poetry: the feeling is more important than technique. Ā

  • Critic Reviews of "Set Fire To The Stars"

    Los Angeles Times

    Gorgeous, evocative and well performed ...

    Entertainment Weekly
    June 13, 2015

    The film wallows too much in its subject's glumness, but it comes alive whenever TV actor and co-writer Celyn Jones, whose only previous film credit is 2005's Lassie, plays Thomas as a big shaggy dog.
    June 12, 2015

    As tedious as "Set Fire to the Stars" gets, it remains watchable courtesy of the stunning black and white cinematography by Chris Seager.

    New York Times
    June 11, 2015

    "Set Fire to the Stars" barely skims the surface of characters you wish had been given more dimension, but as a snapshot of postwar academia and its pretensions, it exerts a creepy fascination.

    June 11, 2015

    Stylistically assured and tastefully appointed.

    New York Daily News
    June 11, 2015

    [A] watchable but thematically repetitive drama about Welsh poet Dylan Thomas' arrival in America in 1950.

    Seattle Weekly
    November 12, 2015

    Set Fire belongs to a genre that might be called Close Encounters With Greatness. They're not biopics, but glancing views by nobodies in a position to observe the backstage workings of genius. It's a formula, and Set Fire never gets beyond that formula.
    July 10, 2015

    Although the screenplay lacks insight into his creative process, the film playfully dissects stuffy postwar academic ostentation.

    The Young Folks
    June 14, 2015

    Set Fire to the Stars may be thematically uneven, but the aforementioned performances and Chris Seager's cinematography more than make up for it.

    Story of the love/hate relationship between the Welsh poet Dylan Thomas and his tour-agent during his first visit to America.

    Movie Mezzanine
    June 11, 2015

    It's a terrifically rounded portrait that captures both Thomas's depressive neuroses and his zest for life.
