The trailer for “Bright Star” dropped this week and I could not be more excited for it. (Minus the trailer voiceover which obviously won’t be in the movie) I’ve heard it’s being touted as an early Oscar contender and I’m hoping Ben Whishaw, who plays the part of poet John Keats, gets a nod. For those of you who haven’t seen any of his movies, RUN and rent some (“I’m Not There”, “Perfume”, “Brideshead Revisited” etc–IMDB it up). He’s clearly one of the most talented British actors of his generation. According to IMDB: The drama [Bright Star] based on the three-year romance between 19th century poet John Keats and Fanny Brawne, which was cut short by Keats’ untimely death at age 25.
The trailer looks incredibly romantic and beautifully shot and you can check it out below….
