A Film

By Grand Central Station I Sat Down and Wept is the last North American literary Classic yet to be realised in film. Set against the back drop of World War Two this new film treatment explores the extraordinary romance between its author, Elizabeth Smart, and the once acclaimed poet George Barker. Played across continents, from Japan to America and from Canada to the bombed out streets of London two lovers chase and betray each other in the pursuit of poetry and passion, love and inspiration.
