I am enjoying my second day of post thesis life by going to the movies and a long lunch with my mother. Thinking about the movies reminded me of Jane Campion's Bright Star. I can't wait to see this film, I am absolutely entranced by every detail about it. According to this website, it will be released in October this year, but that seems too long to wait. I don't know what it is about Keats that has always fascinated me. Maybe it was when I learnt that Percy Bysshe Shelley died with a book of Keats's poetry in his pocket that I decided to learn everything I could about them both. I'm off to read some Keats on a blanket on the grass ...

The images are just lovely! I can't wait to see it too. I got excited when I saw it on the Movie show on ABC cause I thought it was already released. But no.
I am quite interested too. Ever since high school and La Belle Dame Sans Merci. Cliche, I know, but so romantic.
I want to catch up on my 'to read' list, and he is on the list. I really should be studying literature as well. Oh, and I didn't know that P. B. Shelley died with a Keats poetry book in his pocket. Beautiful.
I finished for the semester and if my relief is at least 5% of what you feel, then you must be feeling pretty good!

I didn't know about this film. Thank you for the post. I believe the film, "Mansfield Park" which was directed by Patricia Rozema was excellent. I think she really did Jane Austen justice and hope she'll direct another period piece.

I can't wait for this. I adore Jane Campion, especially her Sweetie and An Angel At My Table, and the shots from her new film look extraordinary.

I'm glad you're blogging anew, dear Dr Hila.
