People not in Bright Star

Postby Raphael » Sun Mar 28, 2010 4:54 am

Who would you have liked to have seen in the film? I'd like to have seen Haydon so we could have seen John's generosity.. :D
Also Abbey so we could have seen John's money worries in a deeper context and his sister as she was so important to him and it would have been nice to have seen the friendship that Fanny B showed to her by writing her letters. And of course George.
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.

As important as his siblings were to him, I would like to have seen, of course, George & Fanny Keats. More of Tom would have been good, too. I remember George reporting that no one understood John and his moods so well as Tom did.

Yes, i'd like to have seen much more of Tom and how John cared for him in Well Walk.

I concur....much more of John with his brothers and some time writing to or talking to Fanny Keats would have been great.
