quietearth [Celluloid 07.22.09] movie trailer news drama

I'm not into period drama and had all but ignored this film as it premiered at Cannes and the news made the rounds, but after watching the trailer with some incredibly beautiful cinematography with top notch framing and the dreamlike nature of the focus of the story, John Keats, I'm sold. Don't shy away folks, check it out.

London 1818: A secret love affair begins between 23-year-old English poet, John Keats (Ben Whishaw), and the girl next door, Fanny Brawne (Abbie Cornish), an outspoken student of high fashion.

This unlikely pair begins at odds, he thinking her a stylish minx, while she is unimpressed, not only by his poetry but by literature in general. However, when Fanny hears that Keats is nursing his seriously ill younger brother, her efforts to help touch Keats, and when she asks him to teach her about poetry, he agrees.

When Fanny's alarmed mother and Keats' best friend finally awake to their atttachment, the relationship has an unstoppable momentum. Intensely and helplessly absorbed in each other, the young lovers are swept deeply into powerful new sensations.

Really looking forward to Campion's Bright Star when it hits theaters this fall. It's great to see her back in the director's chair, and the visuals of the film look stunning. If you haven't seen the official poster for the movie, you can find it here:
