Black Mountain Poets

"This shoe-string budgeted Welsh comedy sparks with brilliant moments of unhinged hilarity" - Wales Online


A relationship comedy shot in just five days in the Black Mountains of Wales, director Jamie Adams’s film marks the culmination of his ‘Modern Romance Trilogy’ – which also includes Benny & Jolene and A Wonderful Christmas Time – and stars the wonderful Alice Lowe and Dolly Wells as a pair of on- the-run sisters who assume the identities of poets to find refuge at a poetry/camping weekend. Downton Abbey’s Tom Cullen stars as the poet who comes between them.
