Bright Star (2009) : treat for the eye

Bright Star is a movie based on the three-year romance between 19th century poet John Keats and Fanny Brawne, which was cut short by Keats' untimely death at age 25. I was admiring Abbie Cornish's acting, and it has something that dragged me to watch it late night where I should be sleeping. But, it's not the best drama romantic movie I've seen before. I wish John Keats can portray more about the man who fights hard for a better life.

But I give a credit for the beautiful shots and Fanny's wardrobe. It was set in 1880's but her style has its own uniqueness. The movie's costume design was nominated for Oscar.

I remember the sound being very bad, unclear voices, but the beauty made it memorable. I should have watched it with subtitles. Lovely pictures there in your review!

The subtitles help a lot. Yes indeed, the images make-up for the bad sides. Thanks :)

Another film with a weak story, and beautiful and inventive visual side is Bunny and the bull, from 2009. Not the best ever film, worth seeing once!

The movie is actually set in 1810's not 1880's. But indeed, extremely beautiful.

Such a pretty, pretty movie! Reminded me of the Pride & Prejudice version with Keira Knightley!

Yes it did. I just love the frames but not so much with story.
