Bright Star

Is anyone else dying to see Bright Star, the movie about John Keats and Fanny Brown, when it's released in December?

One of the love letters from Keats to Fanny Brown, modelled on 17th century form

The Bright Star website is just beautiful, with a "virtual scrapbook" of director Jane Campion's production. On the site are hand-written notes from Jane and her creative team, explaining their processes.

A bit of a spoiler - notes from the art department for the last scene

I particularly love the photography of Greig Frazer.

I'd not heard about this film.
But I adore Keats.
My all time favourite.
Will definitely be seeing this one!
Website is lovely.

No surprises but I hadn't even heard of it.... let alone be dying to see it. But the photography is enough to woo me to the movie.

Liz - i didn't know you were a Keats fan :) do you have a fave poem? I remember enjoying Ode to a Grecian Urn when we studied it at school.

Ally - yes, I think being aware of upcoming films is definitely a luxury of the single person with time on their hands!! (just realised your sign off is an owl! cool!)
