Bright Star is easily one of my favorite films. Just the quiet simplicity of it is something that should be appreciated more in other films. Whether it's Campion's direction, the performances from Ben Whishaw and Abbie Cornish (both of whom still have yet to receive their proper moment in the Hollywood spotlight) or Grieg Fraser's cinematography (how does he not have an Oscar nomination yet?), it's a film that's (fittingly) visual poetry.

I truly and deeply hope that more people will seek this film out.
