    When I saw that this movie is 153 minutes I was like "oh boy, here we go". The movie is very entertaining and gave a great biographic insight to a person with mental health issues and a greatness for writing. I found the 3 parts worked well and provided 3 connected but separate stories. Very well done, and I could have watched more. I highly recommend. 2 years 3 months ago

    This movie is a master-piece as a biography. It's Janet Frame poetry in motion. 8 years 11 months ago

    It's a TV mini series pastiched together into a film which might make it difficult to follow or explain the stark differences between parts. 3 years ago
