Based on the autobiographical work of New Zealand’s most distinguished author, An Angel at My Table recounts Janet Frame’s extraordinary life growing up in a large and impoverished family, suffering unspeakable tragedies, being confined to a mental institution, and finally finding her voice as a writer. Kerry Fox’s portrayal of the painfully shy Frame as an adult is remarkable.

A welcome opportunity to rediscover an early Jane Campion masterpiece with a stunning performance by Kerry Fox.
