Inspired by the love letters written to each other, Bright Star is the story of the relationship between romantic British poet John Keats and girl-next-door, the stylish and headstrong Fanny Brawne, in London during 1818.
Bright Star is a film for anyone who has ever enjoyed a Jane Austin adaptation, or is a fan of period drama, or has a love of most BBC dramas. It really is everything that is lovely about British drama.
Beautifully shot, wonderfully acted, superb performances and set perfectly with costumes, locations, sets etc that are spot on the money, Jane Camption’s Bright Star is a triumph. Filled with humour and poetry, one cannot help but fall in love with this version of love – pure and uncomplicated by modern concerns.
Bright Star is a film that you absolutely must watch.
