Bright Star: Love Letters and Poems of John Keats to Fanny Brawne
The epic romance of one of the most celebrated poets in the English language
Coming to theatres in September 2009 is the tragic love story of nineteenth- century poet John Keats and the love of his life, Fanny Brawne.

Bright Star is a collection of Keats' romantic poems and correspondence in the heat of his passion, and is a dazzling display of a talent cut cruelly short.
