I knew Motion was born in the same year I was, but I did not know his birth date was so close to Keats's!! What a coincidence: Motion, the author of the biography Campion was reading when she became inspired to tell the Keats-Brawne story, as well as the consultant to Campion when researching and filming "Bright Star" and Ben Whishaw, who so beautifully portrayed Keats, were both born in the same month as Keats!!

Oh, while I'm thinking about Whishaw: 10th December: film version of Shakespeare's "The Tempest" (with Helen Mirren as Prospera!) will be released in theatres in US; Whishaw plays Ariel. Ropes of Silicon site has the trailer for viewing. Quite a different role for Ben, although he has stage experience with Shakespeare; different interpretation of Ariel.

Finally! I wasn't sure "The Tempest" would *ever* be released. It will definitely be on my list of films to see :)

Thanks Saturn- I'm going to a holistic fair in the day and being taken to dinner by my new partner in the evening- going to the local tapas bar as they do veggie paellla (quite hard to find places to eat when one is veggie and has intolerances to cow's milk, wheat, eggs and sugar! )

A very belated Happy Birthday to you, friend. Hope you are well.

Unfortunately I have been buried, and can't get to this site like I used to.
Best wishes to all.

Thanks BL- what do you mean by "buried"- is that American slang for busy? Hope you can get to come here more often- miss your thoughtful posts.
