From the fiery energy of her youth to the excitement and acclaim of her early adulthood in New York and Paris, to the demands of living in the public eye, Vincent's life was characterized by creativity, hard work, and passion. "A Girl Called Vincent" traces her incredible journey from a unique and talented girl to an international celebrity and Pulitzer Prize winning poet
