Bright Star

Bright Star (Jane Campion, 2009) John Keats biopic; Abbie Cornish, Ben Wishaw

I know I should wait until I’ve actually watched Jane Campion’s latest, Bright Star (2009) right through before saying something about it, but I may never get there. I keep falling asleep. Abbie Cornish’s appalling dresses don’t attract: that’s not her fault. But casting that acharismatic guy as Keats is someone else’s (fault).
