    Bright Star is one of the best dramas I’ve seen all year! The cast was amazing, and the music haunting. Here’s a great interview I found with Abbie Cornish talking about her character in the film, and how she turned to Keats’ original poetry to answer questions during filming. You can find it here:

    Jane Campion is truly one of the most influential female voices in film today, and I don’t think anyone else could have captured the essence of Keats’ story like her!
