Somehow the existence of Bright Star – a movie about Keats’s three year romance with Fanny Brawne – escaped me until one of my knitty friends suggested we go see it at the Naro, an independent movie theater in Norfolk, VA.
It was such a beautiful movie! Now I want to go out and pick up a collection of poetry by Keats. There’s just something about unrequited love that makes for a good movie. I’m really excited that the soundtrack includes recitations of poetry by the lead actor. I am going to use an iTunes gift card from my brother to buy it.
