Film #1: Bright Star

  Most recently watched what I believe to be one of the most saddest films I will ever watch. Entitled "Bright Star," it is the story of Fanny Brawne and John Keats' love affair, and his subsequent death from tuberculosis at the age of twenty-five. In total, I cried eight times, the hardest at the recital of Keats' poems at the end. For all its sadness, there is much beauty to be found in the both film's cinematography, and English countryside setting.
  Whether or not you personally should watch "Bright Star" is summed up in one simple question: how much do you like doomed love affairs?
