I’m activating my ultimate defense system.
This is the movie I watch, again and again, whenever the going gets tough. It is my 100-percent antidote guaranteed to turn my frown upside down.
This is Jane Campion’s 2009 film about the love affair between John Keats and Fanny Brawne.
It has the most spectacular costumes, thanks to Fanny’s fascination with fashion.
It has Ben Whishaw and Abbie Cornish acting their everloving hearts out—consumption has never been so alluring.
It has Jane Campion conflating the deepest sentiment with the grittiest reality.
It has Keats poems. It has needlework.
It’s available on Amazon, here.
