“We are not wholly bad or good, who live our lives under milk wood”

Ushered in by Verdi and a Welsh male voice choir, the new film of Under Milk Wood is an utterly beautiful vision of Dylan Thomas’ seminal offering of magical prose poetry. Starring Rhys Ifans and Charlotte Church, the film is elegantly directed by Kevin Allen. This lush, enthralling production beautifully compliments the lyricism of Thomas’ masterpiece with its bold, dreamlike imagery. Allen’s erotic, surreal cinematic interpretation explores some of the more visceral elements of the funny, magical dreamscape of Thomas’ Welsh seaside village Llareggub (read it backwards!).
