Synopsis by Tracie Cooper
Directed by Raul daSilva, this two-part take on Samuel Taylor Coleridge's celebrated epic begins with a biography of the poet himself, beginning with his turbulent childhood and delving into his misguided attempts at machismo, problems with drug addiction, and brief military service. His inspiration for the Rime of the Ancient Mariner is also discussed at length, and segues into an adaptation of the poem as narrated by Sir Michael Redgrave. The cast features Roland Curram and Miriam Margolyes.
