Fanny Brawne (Abbie Cornish) meets poet John Keats (Ben Whishaw) and initially they do not like each other, but over time they fall in love. This is an excellent piece of period romantic drama that develops both the two main characters and the supporting characters. Ben Whishaw and Abbie Cornish give good performances as the ill-fated lovers. This is a thoughtful character study not a film with plot twists.
