Bright Star


Bright Star
We here at Padfoot and Prongs don't often consider ourselves the 'girly type'. Sure we like to dress up every now and then and maybe even strut around a little in the grocery store...just in case we get discovered... but all in all we are pretty nerdy tomboyish book nerds who love a good dirty joke and a cold beer.
However all of that is completely thrown out the window when we watch movies based off of 18th century poets named John Keats.
We won't say any thing else. Just watch the trailer and try not to sob when you remember Keats died an untimely death at 25, and this takes place when he was 23.



Ughhhh. Get the tissues ready.

  2. Bahh looks so amazing to me. I am such a sucker for these types of movies. My copies of P&P are pretty much ruined I watch them so much so I am glad I now seem to have a new period-relevant love story to dominate my life.

  5. It really is remarkable how talented a writer Keats was at such a young age.

  6. So true. Such an injustice that he was taken at such a young age, he had so much potential. As as for the love never fully realized, the greatest injustice of all :(

  7. There are many movies about young literary talents coming in the next year: The Rum Diary, Howl, and two about Kerouac, I believe.

  10. I have a thing for great poets who died young. My favorite is Spaniard Gustavo Becquer, who also died VERY young. This movie looks incredible. Thanks for sharing!
