    visually stunning -- absolutely a must see for those with poetic sentimentalities and romantic notions of industrial-era love. this film is long, drawn out, and clout with silence (sometime unnecessarily so), but if you are willing to overcome that, a treat. 13 years 1 month ago

    Jane Campion embraced by 1990s arthouse audiences but who's been missing of late makes an impressive return with "Bright Star." Breaking through any period-piece mustiness with piercing insight into the emotions and behavior of her characters, the writer-director examines the final years in the short life of 19th-century romantic poet John Keats through the eyes of his beloved, Fanny Brawne, played by Abbie Cornish in an outstanding performance. Beautifully made film possesses solid appeal for specialized auds in most markets, including the U.S., where it will be released by Bob Berney and Bill Pohlad's yet-to-be named new distribution company, although its poetic orientation and dramatic restraint will likely stand in the way of wider acceptance. 13 years 2 months ago
