Bright Star

Post by mtmynd » April 12th, 2010, 12:04 pm

Bright Star (2009) is a drama based on the three-year romance between 19th century poet John Keats and Fanny Brawne, which was cut short by Keats' untimely death at age 25.

Written and Directed by Jane Campion (The Piano) is not a fast, action-packed movie, but rather a slow moving stream in pleasant surroundings that captures the era in which John Keats wrote his poetry which became known as the Romantic Era of poetry. It is within this environment where Frannie Brawne first met Keats and their relationship developed into a very strong love that was interrupted by Keat's health conditions.

It sounds good! :) I didn´t knew about the film, gracias!.
Long time time since I saw a film: I have a copy of "A serious man" and "Crazy heart" since some weeks but I didn´t find the time to see them yet!
