Getting nervous about 'Bright Star.'

I don't know. The website only has so much (read: nothing useful whatsoever), and IMDB is equally useless. The release date is for 2009, and it only says UK next to it, so I wonder if it'll be given a run-through there before an American release. (I WOULD DIE OF ANTICIPATION AND ANGER.)

Does anyone have any thoughts/information/previously unknown details about this?

Also...Ben Whishaw...Well, I wasn't sure at first but I do think it will work well enough.

Also, anyone on AIM and wanna fangirl over Keats ever? My AIM is 'JimSturgessIsHot.' I need more Junkets fangirls to giggle with!

Found this on DeviantArt and had to share:

The movie is being distributed internationally by Pathe!, so it may take longer to get over here in an official version. It will, hopefully, be on surfthechannel well before that.

! Good luck on your orals! Is this the thesis defense, or fields/comps?

Ugh, sounds terrifying. I sit my comps at the end of next summer, and my major field exam a few months after that; thankfully, only the latter involves an oral component. My university doesn't do minor field exams, which is a blessing as mine's Anglo-Saxon...

Anyway, I'll be keeping my fingers crossed for you. I just watched everyone in the year ahead of me go through the comps wringer, so I feel for ya!

Ha, funny you should ask that. Until about a month ago, I was "officially" an Anglo-Saxonist. Realized that's not where my heart was, so now I'm a Romanticist. I'm writing my diss (hopefully!) on popular medial literature; one of our rare books libraries has a truly droolworthy collection of primary material in the history of medicine. I can totally get copies of the Astley Cooper lectures Keats attended!

Long-distance diss support? Hells yes. It's always good to have an exterior perspective; departments have their comfort zones, and it's refreshing (not to mention necessary) to poke your head out of the bubble once in awhile.

Your topic sounds really interesting! Have you got that new Stanley Plumly book "Posthumous Keats"? (I swear to god, I do read---mainly---other Romantics, but the question of posterity looms *so* damn large with JK) I'm only a few chapters in, but Plumly purportedly focuses on Keats's contemporary reception and his immediately-posthumous "creation" as this tragic, Chatterton-dying-in-the-sunlight-with-a-rose-type. He also misreads Shelley's "Adonais," which is really interesting and productive in its own way...

I'm sure the film will get at least a limited release in the States. Jane Campion is a very well-respected director, so it would be pretty unlikely that any feature with her name on it would not make it over here in some capacity.

If you're looking for a little eye candy from the film, check out a gorgeous image here (Abbie Cornish as Fanny Brawne). I know there's another one floating around of Keats and Fanny together, but I can't seem to find it at the moment.

Ooooh, thank you! I think I saw the other pic somewhere but don't remember where. Were they in the woods or some such?

Yes, it was definitely a Hampstead Heath in autumn/winter kind of setting.

Awful, isn't it? To quote one of my friends: "I saw him at H&M."

Re: Pics!
That's just SO NOT RIGHT. Keats wouldn't even shop at H&M if he could. He'd be a proper hipster who could only afford thrift stores.

Le SIGH.

haha, i am so late but - give ben whishaw a chance! he is an amazing actor, a very earnest actor, and he is the farthest thing from a "hipster" you will ever find. he is also a huge fan of keats already, which helps!
