Host Gabriel Tyner catches up with Set Fire to the Stars writer/actor Celyn Jones, actress Maimie McCoy and producer Andy Evans on the red carpet opening night at the Miami Dade College Miami International Film Festival

set-fire-to-the-stars.34998In the 1950s, an aspiring poet’s ordered world is shattered when he embarks on a week-long retreat to save Dylan Thomas. Tale of Dylan Thomas’s drink-sodden first tour of America in 1950, where aspiring poet and academic John M Brinnin (Elijah Wood) struggles to keep his unkempt charge on a respectable leash. Fueled by booze, insecurity and egotistical self-pity, the Welsh legend alternately enthralls and appalls all who fall into his circle.
