Bright Star is a romantic movie that captures the poetry of love — this Thursday, Valentine’s Day at 4 p.m. and 6 p.m.

Posted on: February 9, 2013

 To celebrate Valentine’s Day, the Murphy Library is showing Bright Star, a love story about a poet and the young woman who gave meaning to his words.  The library will show the film Thursday at 4 p.m. and 6 p.m.  It is rated PG and will run for 119 minutes.

In the early 19th century John Keats was finishing his studies to become a medical surgeon, but his love of writing kept getting in the way.  He had a poet’s heart and vision, and captured vibrant pictures in his verses.  The only problem two hundred years ago is the same one now – how does one earn a living as a writer.

That question is forgotten momentarily at a summer retreat when Keats meets his lovely eighteen-year-old neighbor, Fannie Brawne.  They soon fall in love.  If only family, friends and finances did not stand in their way. Stars Abbie Cornish and Ben Wishaw.

 Call the library for details at 837-2417.
