Movie Monday: Sylvia

Since a collection of Sylvia Plath’s poems is one of the only books of poetry I own, I was really interested in watching the biopic of her life. Dark, both visually and topically, Sylvia, used knitwear to illustrate yet another layer of the color of one poet’s perpetual despair.
