An Angel at My Table
The true story of one of our century's most gifted writers, An Angel At My Table chronicles the life and extraordinary time of Janet Frame. Born in the 1920s, Janet's early years of fairy tales and schoolgirl pranks were tempered by family tragedy. She retained her beloved books and began to write poetry and short stories. As the years passed her talent grew and so did the challenges to her unique and inspired vision. Her enormous gift for storytelling sustained her through these dark times, finally bringing her the success and happiness she so desperately wanted and deserved. Brilliantly captured by Jane Campion (The Piano), An Angel At My Table has become one of the most critically acclaimed films of its time, capturing over 20 major awards and prizes.
