An Angel at My Table

Film (Trailer and Excerpts) – 1990

Parental Guidance
Campion enters Frame's very soul. Rarely have childhood scenes been so evocatively recreated.
– Iain Johnstone in a Sunday Times (UK) review
Yes, it is visually beautiful, and, yes, it is well-acted, but it doesn't call attention to its qualities. It tells its story calmly and with great attention to human detail and, watching it, I found myself drawn in with a rare intensity.
– Chicago Sun-Times reviewer Roger Ebert
One of the very best films of the year
– Derek Malcolm (The Guardian)
I can't believe it! Well not everyone's that lucky Walda — not on their first try ... something must have clicked!
– Frank Sargeson (Martyn Sanderson) after learning that Frame;s work has been accepted for publication
