Bright Star

Just watched this movie on Netflix.

Set in the early 1800s, it is based upon the personal and passionate romance between the poet, John Keats, and Fanny Brawne, his great love and muse.

I love his poetry, and the filmmaker uses it beautifully within the film.

The actors within capture and display the reality and undeniable strength of a first love in a breathtaking way.

I highly recommend it to any Austen, Bronte, or British literature fan.
