I thought I'd pop in for a quick Resident Expert Friday. I finally saw the movie "Bright Star" and day-um is it good. Seriously. Mariah was crying at the end.
Here's the trailer, if you haven't seen the movie:
Also, here is John Keats' poem that inspired the movie:
Bright star, would I were stedfast as thou art--
Not in lone splendour hung aloft the night
And watching, with eternal lids apart,
Like nature's patient, sleepless Eremite,
The moving waters at their priestlike task
Of pure ablution round earth's human shores,
Or gazing on the new soft-fallen mask
Of snow upon the mountains and the moors--
No--yet still stedfast, still unchangeable,
Pillow'd upon my fair love's ripening breast,
To feel for ever its soft fall and swell,
Awake for ever in a sweet unrest,
Still, still to hear her tender-taken breath,
And so live ever--or else swoon to death.
Sorry I don't have time to swoon over this movie more... maybe another day! Happy Friday!
