Bright Star (M.R.)

This movie follows the three-year romance of John Keats and Fanny Brawne.  It appears a classic tale of girl falls for man who is not into things she likes.  She does not seem to enjoy literature while he is a poet and dislikes her sense of fashion.  The romance blooms, but in this film, it is hard to tell.  Sure, the imagery was beautiful, but it clearly was one of those BBC classic literature films.

It was refreshing, though, to see a romance where the couple is not making love every 5 seconds.  Honestly, I don't think women in the 19th century could have that much sex and not get babies.  I'm just saying.  Otherwise, the movie felt very choppy and it was hard to tell what was going on.

Rating: 5/10
