Released on DVD 27 October 2008
“Keira and Sienna deliver the best performances of their lives”.
‘Beautiful, bohemian, erotic and indelible’
‘A major film’
John Maybury’s powerful love story THE EDGE OF LOVE starring Keira Knightley (Pirates of the Caribbean, Atonement, Academy Award Nominee for Pride and Prejudice), Sienna Miller (Stardust, Factory Girl, Interview), Cillian Murphy (Sunshine, Batman Begins, The Wind that Shakes the Barley) and Matthew Rhys (Brothers and Sisters, Abduction Club) will be released on DVD by Lionsgate Home Entertainment on 27 October 2008
Starring screen favourites Keira Knightley and Sienna Miller and regularly cited as this year’s Atonement, only better; this is a moving wartime biopic not to be missed.
A beautifully drawn love story, the film revolves around two feisty, free-spirited women, Caitlin Thomas and Vera Killick, Vera’s husband William Killick, and the brilliant, charismatic poet Dylan Thomas who loves both women. Broken promises, passion, betrayal, the shadow of war and the constant threat of imminent death provides a vivid setting for THE EDGE OF LOVE. By no means a biopic in the traditional vein, the story explores the collision of the bohemian underworld of war-torn London and the intimate complexities of two young couples whose lives and loves become dangerously intertwined.
THE EDGE OF LOVE is directed by the award-winning John Maybury (Love is the Devil, The Jacket) and produced by Rebekah Gilbertson and Sarah Radclyffe. The screenplay is by Sharman Macdonald (Keira Knightley’s mother) and the impressive production team includes Director of Photography Jonathan Freeman (Hollywoodland, Rome), Academy Award nominated Costume Designer April Ferry (Rome, Donnie Darko), with music by Angelo Badalamenti (Twin Peaks, Wild at Heart, Mulholland Drive).
Shot in London and Wales in several of the locations where Thomas lived and wrote, THE EDGE OF LOVE features stunning cinematography, production design, music and costumes, all helping the drama build. If you missed the film at cinemas, now is your chance to see this year’s best romance with its release on DVD
