Editors Note
Note This sweeping romantic drama about the multiple loves of Welsh poet Dylan Thomas stars two British beauties: Keira Knightley and Sienna Miller. Vera Killick (Knightley) never really got over her romance with Thomas (Matthew Rhys of BROTHERS AND SISTERS), even though he married Caitlin (Miller) and she wed William (Cillian Murphy). With World War II on the horizon and William wearing a soldier's uniform, the characters mix love, infidelity, and danger as their lives become inextricably linked.
Total Film 3 stars out of 5 -- "Putting as much emphasis on the women in the Welsh poet's orbit as on the drunken rascal himself, Sharman Macdonald's script deserves praise for portraying the human cost of the talented scoundrel's feckless self-absorption." 11/01/2008 p.133
Empire 3 stars out of 5 -- "Lots of emoting....The leads get the accents right, and Rhys makes a good fist of the Welsh wordsmith..." 11/01/2008 p.187
Box Office 4 stars out of 5 -- "Knightley looks stunning and appears to have a special empathy with her character....Deftly handled by John Maybury, the tangle of affections is portrayed with assurance and sensitivity. These are passionate and complex beings, caught up in a maelstrom of emotions..." 03/08/2009
Washington Post "Maybury is a filmmaker of lush visual imagination....THE EDGE OF LOVE is shot through with expressive visual flourishes and tricks of the eye." 03/20/2009
