Jane Campion – Bright Star (2009)

From telegraph.co.uk:
Bright Star, which she not only directed but adapted from Andrew Motion’s 1997 biography of the Romantic poet John Keats, is not just a return to form, to the promise she showed in early films such as Sweetie (1989) and An Angel At My Table (1990), it’s by some measure the best film she’s ever made.

From nytimes.com:
John Keats was a Romantic poet. “Bright Star,” which tells the tale of Keats and Fanny Brawne, the love of his short life, is a romantic movie. The vernacular of popular culture and the somewhat specialized language of literary history assign different meanings to that word, but the achievement of Jane Campion’s learned and ravishing new film is to fuse them, to trace the comminglings and collisions of poetic creation and amatory passion.

From guardian.co.uk:
“The beginning of your poem has something very perfect,” says Keats’s lover, Fanny Brawne, of his Endymion – before complaining that the rest of it isn’t nearly as good. Tactfully, Jane Campion allows us to understand that this is not so much a criticism of Keats’s poetry but his life, in fact all our lives. They are finest at the beginning and careless youth is an Endymion moment, a blaze of perfection and rightness, destined to decay with adulthood’s compromises and responsibilities.
