I'd say check again on Thursday night, Friday morning.
I might go myself, even if it means going alone

Malia wrote:Hi Raphael,
While I enjoyed the movie a lot, I must admit I wasn't moved to tears. That said, I'm not generally moved to tears by movies (those that *do* move me, though, get me bawling! LOL). I think part of the reason I didn't cry during this movie is that I've studied Keats for so long, I found myself focusing on analyzing how the movie portrayed his and Fanny's story; so I kind of "stepped back" from it a bit, emotionally speaking. I will admit that one of the last scenes gave me the shivers all three times I watched the movie, so there are definitely emotional moments!
I think the emotion that I felt *most* when I first saw the movie was a giddy near-disbelief! Just hearing Keats's name spoken on screen--along with the names of his circle--was enough to make me feel like I was in some kind of parallel universe! And I had a great smile on my face for about the 1st 1/2 hour.
Looking forward to reading both your and Saturn's review when you've seen it

Like Malia, I was just shocked and amazed and delighted to no end to actually SEE a film with Keats in it! This was so stunning to me that I couldn't believe what I was hearing. My expectations were different so the first time I saw it I had to adjust to the movie, and try to follow it without too much analyzing - which is hard to do since I know so much about him. My emotions are way too close to the surface, so I really could not hold back the tears watching this movie. Because of what I brought to the movie, it was easier for me to feel it.
The 2nd time I saw it with my wife and son - and it was unlike any experience I ever had in a movie. This is not an overstatement, just my own response. Later, I realized the tears came more from what the movie elicited in my recollections of Keats than for something specific in the movie.
I do hope you enjoy it - but you might like it better the second time around.
