Bright Star

London 1818: a secret love affair begins between 23 year old English poet, John Keats, and the girl next door, Fanny Brawne, an outspoken student of fashion. This unlikely pair started at odds; he thinking her a stylish minx, she unimpressed by literature in general. It was the illness of Keats‘s younger brother that drew them together. Keats was touched by Fanny‘s efforts to help and agreed to teach her poetry.

By the time Fanny‘s alarmed mother and Keats‘s best friend Brown realised their attachment, the relationship had an unstoppable momentum. Intensely and helplessly absorbed in each other, the young lovers were swept into powerful new sensations, “I have the feeling as if I were dissolving”, Keats wrote to her. Together they rode a wave of romantic obsession that deepened as their troubles mounted. Only Keats‘s illness proved insurmountable.

“We’re able to move around the film’s psychological and domestic landscapes with a freedom that most historical dramas and literary biopics are too corseted to permit us. The happy result is that a well-known, even over-familiar story ends up feeling raw and utterly new.” THE TELEGRAPH

Fish Tank

The Independent says...

"The film has a terrific lead in new name Katie Jarvis, famously discovered having an argument with her boyfriend. She's immensely affecting as Mia, never a cartoon of defiant feistiness, but a complex mix of determination, fragility and sandpaper cussedness. Also good is another newcomer Rebecca Griffiths, as Mia's kid sister, Tyler. Uneven as it is, Fish Tank is a powerful film from a director with a steely take on the world, who is able to make Essex look almost soulful."
