bright star

i. loved. this. movie. they don't make enough movies like this anymore. it is poetry is visual form. based on the story of Romantic poet John Keats and his muse, Fanny Brawne, the movie follows the pair as they meet, fall in love, and experience the wonder and heartache of true love.

every scene is exquisite. every detail is beautifully shot. the acting is amazing. the wardrobe- to die for. apparently, Fanny was quite the seamstress- and her hand-sewn frocks made me sigh with sincere delight during the entire movie.

you must see this movie. did i mention there's a scene where Fanny and her siblings catch butterflies and create a "butterfly farm" in Fanny's room? swoon.

the tag line for the movie is "first love burns brightest". that says it all.


  1. it's a beautiful movie. the scene when she lies on the bed and the linen curtains blow over her just takes my breath away. enjoy your weekend!

  2. I loved this movie... so incredibly romantic and loved her outfits... have a lovely weekend!

  3. I saw the movie yesterday, and I still can't stop thinking,stop ,take the image and beauty of the movie out of my mind. It was Beautiful and breath taking.
