Last night I watched this most wonderful film and felt that I just had to tell everyone about it, I can't recommend it enough, especially if you like poetry, beautiful scenery and fabulous costumes!It is all about the 3 year love affair between Keats and Fanny Brown who was a student of fashion and his neighbour in the then village of Hampstead in London. (I believe they found the two houses close together to film at just outside London)
Look at this most beautiful costume such a vivid pink wouldn't it be so romantic (if unpractical)to wear such clothes today!
This is just a few of the images, there is a lovely one at the beginning of the film showing you rows and rows of white linen on the washing line.
Such a shame he died so young at 25 and was so poor. I believe you can stay at Keats House with the Landmark Trust in Rome. Nice romantic retreat although she didn't go with him!
Definitely a film to keep watching! Do go and see it if you can or buy the DVD.
