An Angel at My Table is a 1990 film that tells the true story of famed New Zealand author Janet Frame. Originally produced as a miniseries, the film chronicles Frame's early childhood in a poor family with many brothers and sisters. She finished high school and attends university to become a teacher, but is locked up in an institution for eight years due to her mental "abnormalities." She later is released and finds great success, both professionally and socially, when she begins a career as an author. Divided into three separate parts, the film chronicles Frame at three different ages, played by Karen Fergusson (child), Alexia Koegh (young adult), and Kerry Fox (adult). Also starring Iris Churn, Jessie Mune, Kevin J. Wilson, and Francesca Collins, the film was directed by Jane Campion. An Angel at My Table was highly acclaimed, and won the Grand Special Jury Prize at the Venice Film Festival as well as the best foreign film award at the Independent Spirit Awards.moreless
