A special red-carpet gala was held in Swansea last night for the Welsh premiere of the new Dylan Thomas film.
The movie - starring Elijah Wood and Welsh actor Celyn Jones explores the poet's time in New York and his tumultuous relationship with his agent John Brinnin.
The film, which was shot in Swansea and the surrounding area, is set in America in the early 50s, as we follow Dylan Thomas through one eventful week in his life.
Actor Celyn Jones plays Thomas, and also co-wrote the script.
The film doesn't pretend to be an exhaustive account of Thomas' life.
The focus - the relationship between the poet and the American writer John Malcolm Brinnin - played by Elijah Wood.
The film premiered in Edinburgh earlier this year, with the Swansea showing intended as a celebration for the crew and everybody involved with the project.
The film will be shown at selected cinemas across the country from the end of the week.
