Sylvia

Sylvia Synopsis

This is the story of poet Sylvia Plath; her ambition, her passion for the poet Ted Hughes, her genius, and ultimately, her tragic end.

From the moment they set eyes on each other at a Cambridge party, poets Ted Hughes and Sylvia Plath found themselves wrapped in an all consuming love, which became an intense and passionate creative force. Yet the power of their attraction was mirrored in the anguish of their eventual unbearable parting.

Starring Gwyneth Paltrow and Daniel Craig, SYLVIA is a moving portrait of a marriage blighted by tragedy.
