A film of exquisite poetry, both literary and visual, Bright Star is the true story of the 19th-century love affair between 23-year-old Romantic poet John Keats, and Fanny Brawn, the girl next door. Starring Ben Whishaw and Abbie Cornish, Bright Star has been called "one of the most deeply moving romantic films in memory” (LA Times). It opens Friday, October 2.
"Intimate as a whisper, immediate as a blush, and universal as first love, Bright Star positively palpitates with the sensual and spiritual." (Carrie Rickey, Philadelphia Inquirer)
