"An Angel at My Table"
Directed by Jane Campion
The true story of one of
our century's most gifted writers, An Angel at My Table chronicles
the life and extraordinary times of Janet Frame. Born in the 1920s,
Janet's early years of fairy tales and schoolgirl pranks were tempered by
family tragedy. She retreated to her beloved books and began to write
poetry and stories. As the years passed her talent grew and so did the
challenges to her unique and inspired vision.
