Bright Star

I loved this film so much.A friend of mine told me about it months ago but silly moi had to wait months before finally watching this piece of heaven on earth.For period movie buffs like me,its everything a film{of the romance order]should be.It is so delicate and personal and the chemistry between John Keats and Fanny Brawne was surprisingly electrifying.I also loved everything Fanny wore and just wanted to live in that world so much as the costumes were so simple yet definably spoke least to me it did.To end i will Quote the film's titles poem by John Keats.....
Bright star, would I were stedfast as thou art--
Not in lone splendour hung aloft the night
And watching, with eternal lids apart,
Like nature's patient, sleepless Eremite,
The moving waters at their priestlike task
Of pure ablution round earth's human shores,
Or gazing on the new soft-fallen mask
Of snow upon the mountains and the moors--
No--yet still stedfast, still unchangeable,
Pillow'd upon my fair love's ripening breast,
To feel for ever its soft fall and swell,
Awake for ever in a sweet unrest,
Still, still to hear her tender-taken breath,
And so live ever--or else swoon to death.
