Sylvia is a 2003 British motion picture that tells a biographical story of the romance between Sylvia Plath, a prominent American poet and her husband Ted Hughes, an English poet. The film begins with their meeting at Cambridge in 1956 and ends with Sylvia Plath's suicide in 1963.

It stars Gwyneth Paltrow (as Sylvia Plath), Daniel Craig (as Ted Hughes), Jared Harris (as Al Alvarez), Amira Casar (as Assia Wevill), Blythe Danner (as Aurelia Plath) and Michael Gambon and was directed by Christine Jeffs. Much of the film was filmed in New Zealand.

Frieda Hughes, Sylvia and Ted's daughter, accused the filmmakers of profiting from her mother's death.
