An Angel at My Table

An Angel at My Table ★★★★

Far more staid than Sweetie, her debut, Jane Campion’s second film nevertheless dramatizes the life of New Zealand poet and novelist Janet Frame in a way only Campion could: with an eye for the poetically evocative detail and an intuitive understanding of the way gender can function as a trap.
