bright star

24 – 27 June, 2018

Campion’s most recent feature film dramatizes the short, chaste and intense romance between the poet John Keats (Ben Whishaw) and his neighbour, the seamstress Fanny Brawne (Abbie Cornish), in the three years leading up to his death from tuberculosis aged only 25. Campion presents the affair as a Romantic poem brought to life, moving from one extreme of emotion to another and centring on Fanny’s perspective, from blissful contentment to inconsolable grief. Bright Star features breath taking visuals shot by Greig Fraser and a moving central performance from Cornish.
