We already know Tar is the collection of poems by C.K. Williams. The last poem of the collection called “One of the Muses”, is starring James Franco, Mila Kunis, and Henry Hopper (
One of the Muses is a lyrical piece recounting the tumultous night of CK in his forties (James Franco). The study room becomes “the house of shadows” as C.K. prepares a lecture the following day and experiences a writer’s block. He slowly plunges into his dark memories and early relationships as a twenty-year old (Henry Hopper), a cathartic experience that strengthens his present day with his wife (Mila Kunis).
Late at night, CK lies in bed and contemplates the shadows that decorate the bedroom walls. A shadow of a woman on the wall brings him back to his first love Sarah from their first seduction to their first silence in bed. A memory that has been warped over time, CK remembers.
