This article contains indepth information about the 2009 drama, Bright Star.
Bright Star is a drama/romance film that is
based on the last three years of the life of poet John Keats. It stars Ben Whishaw as Keats and Abbie Cornish as his muse Fanny Brawne. It was filmed under
the direction of Jane Campion, who also wrote the screenplay, inspired by the
biography of Keats by Andrew Motion, who also served as a script consultant on
the film. The film competed in the main competition at the 62nd Cannes Film
Festival, and was first shown to the public on 15 May 2009. The film's
title is a reference to a sonnet by Keats named "Bright star, would I were stedfast as thou art", which he wrote while he was with Brawne.
Several other poems are recited in the movie, including "The Eve of St. Agnes"
and "Ode to a Nightingale".

The Hyde House and Estate in Hyde, Bedfordshire
substituted for the Keats House in Hampstead. Campion decided that the Keats
House (also known as Wentworth Place) was too small and "a little bit fusty".
