A FILM that explores the true-life love story involving Welsh poet Dylan Thomas which features scenes shot in Tenby is due to be released in UK cinemas next month.

John Maybury's The Edge Of Love, which stars Academy Award nominee Keira Knightley, along with Sienna Miller, will open in London on June 20, prior to a nationwide release on June 27, through Lionsgate UK. The film also features Welsh actor Matthew Rhys in the lead role of Dylan Thomas and Irish actor Cillian Murphy, who featured in blockbuster Batman Begins. Described as a beautifully drawn love story, the film centres on a time in the life of the poet when he briefly lived in New Quay with his young family in 1945. The story revolves around two feisty, free-spirited women, Caitlin Thomas and Vera Killick, Vera's husband William Killick, and the charismatic poet Dylan Thomas who loves both women. Production filming for The Edge Of Love first created a stir in May of last year as its high profile Hollywood stars shot scenes in New Quay, Ceredigion and also at Dylan Thomas's boat house in Laugharne. Following on from that, the film's producers chose a property at Tenby's Lexden Terrace in St. Julian Street to double as a 1940s style London Georgian house, where filming took place with the actors for two days. The Dylan Thomas Centre in Swansea will be exhibiting exclusive costumes, storyboards, graphics and other iconic pieces from the film. It also houses the largest collection of Dylan Thomas memorabilia across the world. For further information, contact The Dylan Thomas Centre on 01792 463980.
