Grip the Raven

A meeting between Edgar Allan Poe and Charles Dickens really happened. But the rest - a shared Raven, a bewitching Muse (Virginia, the teen-cousin wife of Poe), and the effect these two literary Titans had on each other is the great mystery. It's 1842 and the future flies on dark wings.

Directed Laura Flanagan.
