Bright Star dramatization

Postby Ennis » Sun Dec 26, 2010 1:34 am

Happy Yuletide, fellow Keatsians!!

Check out the dramatization of Joan Rees's Bright Star by Frank Farrell on Youtube. That's all I have to say about it . . . -- although I am curious to know what you guys think of it.

I will try to see it. Thanks for the heads up.

I've had a quick flick through some of it- I daren't watch it all even though the dongle is running videos tonight- it eats the data! I will have to watch it properly at the library. It seems they have two actors playing John. It's very stagey acting- of course not a patch on the film.
John....you did not live to see-
who we are because of what you left,
what it is we are in what we make of you.

It only seems to go up to act 1 scene 5.
