Poetry Month Movie Night for Teens & Adults – Showing the film “Bright Star,” on 4/27 @ 6:30

“Bright Star is a film by Jane Campion (director of The Piano) about the love story between Fanny Brawne and John Keats. The passionate letters that passed between them during his last few years are actually available still in several publications and biographies. It is a quiet, thoughtful and deeply affecting love story.” – Silver Petticoat Review

“Bright Star is a 2009 biographical fiction romantic drama film based on the last three years of the life of poet John Keats and his romantic relationship with Fanny Brawne.It stars Ben Whishaw as Keats and Abbie Cornish as Fanny. It was directed by Jane Campion, who wrote the screenplay inspired by Andrew Motion’s 1997 biography of Keats; Motion served as a script consultant on the film.” – Wikipedia

“Bright Star is also quite beautiful. It was shot almost entirely on a single location outside of London. Most of the story takes place in a house deep in the countryside, surrounded by lush greenery and bluebell bedecked forest. The costumes are eye-catching, especially Fanny’s, which are unusual creations that she has made herself. Great attention is paid to the color palette used in each individual scene which makes it all very visually appealing.” – Silver Petticoat Review
