Kill the Poet

Fridrik Thor Fridriksson

Iceland's greatest, and poorest, young poet and a female painter from one of Reykjavík's wealthiest families begin an epic, star-crossed love affair during World War II, at a time when artists such as themselves were being blacklisted by Communist witch-hunts. Set in Reykjavík and New York.
