Bright Star is described as "One of the most deeply moving, romantic films in memory"....well certainly in mine.
And, "A delicately created, deeply felt film of both restraint & intensity, visually ravishing & quietly absorbing"
Written & directed by our own New Zealand director Jane Campion, Bright Star is the enthralling story of the first love of renowned English poet John Keats & his Fanny Brawne; inspired by the couples actual love letters & Keats own sublime poetry the film is utterly mesmerizing & elegantly graceful; yet witty & clever too.
I sooo wanted to be able to tell you about this beautiful film because it is so rare & lovely. You'll know by the music & the pictures here if it's something that might appeal to you too. I shall keep it forever & watch it a thousand times.
Here are some more reasons why I just love it...a room full of butterflies..
ahh, a swing in an oak tree...I so want one like this!!
We have an old chair exactly the same. Perhaps,
I could just cut off it's legs!!
a gorgeous picnic
and a washing line so full on wash day that it makes you swear you'll never complain about your own washing ever again!
& then of course a love so sweet that all else is peripheral
so much beauty it makes your heartache..with joy
This trailer is wonderful all on it's own.
