'a fascinating evocation of the creation of a writer'

It was good to see Jane Campion's legendary film An Angel at My Table (based on Janet Frame's autobiography) in this list of ten essential films about Twentieth century writers. In good company, too.

Originally released in 1990, the luminescent Angel shows no signs of age at all, with frequent rescreenings and TV airings all around the world in countless languages, and it continues to pick up new enthusiastic fans.
