Under Milk Wood open for bookings!

Metrodome Distribution are delighted to announce that Kevin Allen’s acclaimed and starry feature film adaptation of Wales’ greatest poem is now available to book at your venue from its very first day of release, 30 October. Starring Rhys Ifans and with Charlotte Church as you’ve never seen her before, the distributor is inviting bookings, even for limited shows and short runs, from all cinemas and film societies.

Mark the end of Dylan Thomas’s centenary year celebration, ‘DT100’, by screening the English language version of Allen’s “lusty and accessible” (Mark Kermode) adaptation, described in The Guardian’s 4-star review as “a funny, sweaty, bawdy, hyperactive, highly coloured fever-dream”. Originally written for an iconic BBC radio play in 1954 and immortalised on screen by Richard Burton and Elizabeth Taylor in 1972, Under Milk Wood is an enduring pillar of Welsh literature that comes alive with Allen’s unstifled, energetic and melodic approach, exploring the visceral elements of Thomas’s most famous and greatest work.

Realising that you are often forced to wait months in order to play new releases in your venues, Metrodome invite you to suggest early bookings from 30 October in order to benefit from the publicity surrounding the national release, which will include a star-studded premiere the week prior.

Under Milk Wood is available to book on DCP, Blu-ray and DVD.

Please email bookings@metrodomegroup.com for more information and to sign up to the Metrodome exhibitor newsletter.

Film Hub Wales have also found out recently that Dan Y Wennalt, the Welsh language version of the film is now an Academy Award contender. The US Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences have confirmed that the film is one of the 81 submitted films consideration for this year’s Academy Award for Best Foreign-Language Film. We will be looking out for it when the final nominations are announced in January.
