Tom’s poem developed while he was working with filmmaker Gary Wilkinson on the biographical film Wildflower, which followed the life of Eileen O’Shaughnessy as she grew up and ultimately met and married Eric Blair (George Orwell). She died too soon after the couple adopted their son, Richard.

The first screening of Wildflower was in March 2014. Quentin Kopp made this report.
