Tom & Viv is a 1994 film directed by Brian Gilbert, which tells the story of the relationship between the American poet T. S. Eliot and his first wife, Vivienne Haigh-Wood Eliot. They were married in 1915 after a brief courtship, and separated in 1933 though they never divorced.[1]

The film, based on a 1984 play by the same name by British playwright Michael Hastings, stars Willem Dafoe, Miranda Richardson, Rosemary Harris, Tim Dutton and Nickolas Grace. It was nominated for Academy Awards for Best Actress in a Leading Role (Miranda Richardson) and Best Actress in a Supporting Role (Rosemary Harris).
