Here is a dirty hands biopic with bite.
Jane Campion's rigorous filmic rendition of Janet Frame's picaresque autobiography is a stunner by any measure.
New Zealand's most celebrated author/poet gets a fully voiced telling of a life punctuated by abuse, tragedy, and literary success.
Campion's pitch perfect casting of three actresses to perform different periods of Frame's life, anchors this film in a rare sense of dynamic realism.
"An Angel At My Table" is Jane Campion's finest cinematic achievement.
Rated R. 158 mins.
