Jane Campion on Bright Star

Taking more than $3 million at the box office when it was released on Boxing Day last year, Bright Star is now available on DVD and Blu-Ray.

The 119-minute drama, set in London in 1818, is the tender story of first love between the romantic English poet, John Keats and the girl next door, Fanny Brawne.

Inspired by the actual love letters between the couple and Keats' sublime poetry, Bright Star reveals one of the world's great, untold love stories in this exquisitely beautiful and deeply moving film.

Masterfully written and directed by Academy Award winner Jane Campion (The Piano), it stars Australian actress Abbie Cornish in an extraordinary performance that evokes the giddy intoxication of romance, alongside British rising star Ben Whishaw.
