Movies about/starring women. I originally started this list just as a reference for myself, but hopefully others will find it…
The Edge of Love
The only thing more dangerous than war... is love.
Two feisty, free-spirited women are connected by the brilliant, charismatic poet who loves them both.
Movie is about Dylan Thomas and his numerous lovers. That might mean something to people who know who Dylan Thomas is....but I am not one of those people. So not knowing anything about him....I came to the conclusion that he was not a very nice person. But he hung around other not nice people....so he fits in well. Three of the four main characters....lie, cheat and seem pretty selfish. The fourth main character goes to war and comes back as an abusive violent person. By the end of the movie I did not care what happened to these people. Probably not the goal of the movie.
It's an average film elevated by it's two incredibly beautiful female leads. They have a chemistry between them that make them fun to watch but the film stumbles all over itself anytime they interact with the male actors.
Two feisty, free-spirited women are connected by the brilliant, charismatic poet who loves them both. The poet in question is Dylan Thomas who come across as a self centred moody genius , The two woman are his wife Kathleen a troubled promiscuous woman played brilliantly by Sennia Miller and Vera his childhood sweetheart who is now married to a soldier, Enjoyable drama
En esta película biográfica sobre el poeta inglés Dylan Thomas me ha resultado aburrida y nada convicente, lo único que la salva es la música ( de Angelo Badalamenti: Mulholland Drive, Twin Peaks... ) y una bonita fotografía (Jonathan Freeman: Juegos de tronos, Boardwalk Empire...).
In this biopic about the English poet Dylan Thomas I found this boring and nothing convincing, the only thing that saves it is the music (Angelo Badalamenti: Mulholland Drive, Twin Peaks ...) and a nice photograph (Jonathan Freeman: Games thrones, Boardwalk Empire ...).
The stunning Keira Knightley and Sienna Miller are well cast in this heartfelt war-time drama. The Edge Of Love thrives from its good performances combined with incredible chemistries, but its style is also visually impressive with beautiful scenery, set designs and costumes. Based loosely on the real life of Welsh poet Dylan Thomas, the story is emotional and engaging, and it does well to distinguish itself from the many other Knightley-led romantic dramas.
Lovely; bit of a case of style over substance but very well acted, and the setting was incredible. I'm a bit of a one for South Wales at the best of times but it was SO well shot.
This never really grabbed my interest, even while Cillian Murphy being one of my favorite actors, it feels like there is a bit of overacting from everybody and couldn't really feel the chemistry between anybody. I watched it for the sake of Murphy and he was what made me stick with it all the way through but Sienna Miller was also decent.
Not being a fan of costume dramas or Keira Knightley in particular, you might wonder why I watched this. Well, I am a big fan of Cillian Murphy and Siena Miller. Can't deny Knightley can act, but it is Siena Miller in particular that kept me watching. Still, even then it was only average.
De lo que menos me gustó que hizo Keira.
"I do it because i'm a poet, and poets feed off of life!"
The story of war time London, the womanizing poet Dylan Thomas and the two gorgeous women in his life. Free spirits, big emotions, longing, despair and jealousy and without forgetting the mayhem and agony of the war and.... uniforms. Beautiful film with lovely characters. Finally something that made me feel like reading poetry.
i am such a slut for keira knightley in anything
Why aren't Keira and Sienna's characters gay though?
Dylan Thomas, kind of a prick.
Bellos versos de Dylan Thomas, si ese fue el gancho, funcionó, la aguanté hasta el final.
This is a classic example of how a movie doesn't come together, despite many things that should result in a good movie. Acting was fine, story was okay, costumes were great. But it just all felt so blah.
Cost: free from library
Where watched: at home, while the freezing rain started.
All the way from 'The Land Before Time' to 'The Social Network'.

Work in progress, will…
I have tried to limit this list to proper period dramas (no animated features or alternate histories) and arrange them…
