Mini Review - Bright Star

Bright Star (out Dec 26) is a beautifully shot movie from Academy Award winning director Jane Campion (The Piano). Set in the 19th Century, Fanny Brawne (Abbie Cornish) was a fashion designer who fell in love with a budding poet by the name of John Keats (Ben Wishaw). The dialogue feels more "real" than your normal period piece and the romance comes through strongly. Grade: A-.
