Bright Star opens with violin music, a choir singing "huh,huh,huh" and an extreme close up of sewing. Your instinct that you're about to sit through two hours of boredom is accurate. Bright Star is about the romance between the famous poet John Keats and his socialite girlfriend. Bright Star is the very definition of chick flick and, not only that, it's a period movie. While the story is simple, the dialogue is not and often feels like poetry. This drags the film down and makes the story extremely boring. Hey, if this is your type of thing go see it, but for the rest of us: Grade F. Ages 13+.
