Story


From Focus World and director/star James Franco, a film about visionary poet Hart Crane, who lived a life of beauty, passion, and tragedy. Hart Crane was one of the most important voices in American poetry - but lived a life with as much turmoil as passion. From his early life to his journeys from New York, Cuba, and Paris, Crane's story and that of the loves that defined him is told with imaginative empathy, and with a no holds barred performance - in a film as introspective, rebellious, heartbreaking, and honest as Crane himself.

REVIEWS BY CRITICS

“..it's mostly a tedious chore, much akin to listening poetry you don't much like..”
by Todd McCarthy [Hollywood Reporter]
“..feels less a movie than an outline for one..”
by Stephen Holden [New York Times]
“..feels unique as a young man's tribute to an adventuresome, doomed soul..”
by Joshua Rothkopf [Time Out New York]
