Movie Details

Director Brent Fidler details the remarkable experiences that shaped Edgar Allan Poe's rich imagination with this biographical drama that uses the legendary author and poet's deathbed dreams as a springboard to exploring his remarkable life. Born into theater and raised in England, Poe would later make his home on the docks of Richmond. It was there that the author produced his true classics - some of the best-known works in literary history. As Poe lies in his hospital bed edging ever closer to the unknown, the past intermingles with the present to highlight how one author managed to transform his inner torment into words that would reverberate down through the generations, profoundly affecting the lives of anyone who dared enter his macabre world. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi
