Bright Star

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’s (fault).

The three-year romance between 19th-century poet John Keats and Fanny Brawne near the end of his life.

Abbie Cornish, Ben Whishaw
