Movie trailer for Bright Star: (I did have a video interview with the director Jane Campion which I enjoyed but the link no longer works for me.)>>original post with more information and pics
Much as I love Keats, I just wish they hadn't done a "Becoming Jane" to his story. There is so much more to John Keats than Fanny Brawne, whom I cannot label his Bright Star. More like his dark shadow. Not to be too self-serving, I just blogged about Keats and Bright Star, if you care for a longer discussion.
Hi Jane, I did read your post. Since I know nothing of Keats, I don't know how much truth there is to this telling. I think it's based more on fact than "Becoming Jane" was since that film was admittedly based on speculation with very few facts to go on. I am looking forward to this film but will watch it like every other biopic, with the knowledge that it is someone else's interpretation and not to be taken as the whole truth.
>I think it's based more on fact than "Becoming Jane" was since that film was admittedly based on speculation with very few facts to go on.Very true--I don't imagine there's a Bright Star bio out there that I don't know about! :)
Do you happen to know where they filmed the scene where Fanny is sitting in the grass with the blue/purple flowers? And, would you happen to know what kind of flowers they are? Thanks for any info!
reply to anon,sorry but I don't know.
I don't know where that scene with the flowers was filmed... I just know they are called lavender.
I HAVE RETIRED FROM THE BLOG AND WILL NO LONGER BE DOING UPDATES. THANKS!
