From out of nowhere a press screening was added here in Seattle for The Edge of Love, a film starring Keira Knightley, Sienna Miller, Cillian Murphy and Matthew Rhys and directed by John Maybury who directed Knightley in The Jacket in 2005. The film in limited theaters on March 20 — I know Seattle and New York are on that limited city schedule — and I have no idea how far it will go beyond that.
The film is a weird love story centering on two free-spirited women, Caitlin Thomas (Miller) and Vera Killick (Knightley); Vera’s husband, William Killick (Murphy); and the brilliant, charismatic poet Dylan Thomas (Rhys) who loves both women. You can imagine where it goes from there.
The Edge of Love was actually released in the UK in June of 2008 after debuting at Cannes to a rather lackluster response, but no overwhelmingly negative reviews. I am still anxious to check it out and see if Maybury can improve on the bust that was The Jacket.
