An Angel at My Table


Watch An Angel at My Table (1990)

This is the bio of the great fiction writer, Janet Frame, based on her trio of autobiographical works. It covers her life in New Zealand as she grows up in a loving but poor family. Her relationship with her doting parents, one brother and three cherished sisters makeup the first part of the film. She was a brilliant child who, as a teen, was misdiagnosed as having schizophrenia. The result of that diagnosis is portrayed in stark detail. The last third of the film covers Janet's exploration of the world and her life in Europe as her books are published to acclaim.... Show more

An Angel at My Table - fantastic movie. I will grant that my expectations were very low before seeing this movie. I sat for a long time after the end of An Angel at My Table, reflecting on my thoughts. An Angel at My Table filled me with difficult to explain energy got me so immersed in it. I really like film music, this movie's pure strip. Great actors and great story. However, I think that well-chosen actors and an interesting script are not pushed to the background by music, because a good movie consists of many great parts.
