Our Picks Notable DVD
Called "one of the most deeply moving romantic films in memory" by Kenneth Turan in the LA Times, this luminous 2009 release by Oscar-nominated director Jane Campion brought to life the relationship between 19th-century poet John Keats (Ben Whishaw) and Fanny Brawne (Abbie Cornish) in the final three years of his life, which ended at age 25. The film won a slew of Australian Film Institute awards, and was nominated for an Oscar for Achievement in Costume Design.

"A shimmering tale of love and poetry.... Those who love language will savor the dialogue, as well as the visual splendor of the film. With its gorgeously framed shots and superb craftsmanship, Bright Star is a thing of beauty.... Keats is touched when she responds with unexpected compassion to the news of his brother's serious illness. A friendship builds slowly into love. Their ardor borders on obsession, with Fanny dramatically threatening suicide when separated from Keats."USA Today

"Every frame of this exquisite period romance features an attention to detail, a passion for literature and an intense, fully clothed, pre-Victorian sexiness that suggest a director in something close to rapture. She's as much on fire for John Keats as his beloved Fanny Brawne. Bright Star is Campion's first full-length film since 2003's In the Cut and her best since The Piano."San Francisco Chronicle
