Directed by Jane Campion, An Angel at My Table is adapted from author Janet Frame's renowned three-part autobiography. It threads together a series of images and scenes to evoke Frame's dramatic life story. Originally made as a TV drama, the much-acclaimed and richly-visual film established Campion as an international director, launched the career of actress Kerry Fox, and introduced new audiences to the "mirror city" of Frame's writing. This excerpt follows Frame's life-saving escape from Seacliff Asylum, to first publishing success at Frank Sargeson’s bach.

Campion enters Frame's very soul. Rarely have childhood scenes been so evocatively recreated.
- Iain Johnstone, Sunday Times (UK) reviewer
