Bright Star

Jane Campion (The Piano) directs this lush, period biopic about the brief, chaste love affair between sickly Romantic poet John Keats (Ben Whishaw) and wealthy society gal Fanny Brawne (Abbie Cornish). The film is a feast for the senses and a real treat for Anglophile fans of "Masterpiece Theatre." Nonetheless, the romance (polite, short-lived and unfulfilled as it was) can't match the earthy passion of The Piano. 119 minutes PG.
