BBC America has acquired the film “A Poet in New York,” starring Tom Hollander.

Hollander plays Dylan Thomas, the famous poet known for his wild, hard-drinking lifestyle.

Written by screenwriter Andrew Davies (“House of Cards”), the drama explores how Thomas’ experiences made his life virtually untenable and examines how his destructive personality played into his own demise.

The film is directed by Aisling Walsh and also stars Essie Davis, as Dylan’s wife Caitlin, Ewen Bremner and Phoebe Fox.

The film will premiere in the U.S. this fall on BBC America.
