_Bright Star_ trailer now available

The trailer has come available for Jane Campion's Bright Star, a new film about the romance between John Keats and Fanny Brawne.

Watch the trailer here.

The film is currently scheduled for theatrical release in the US on September 18th and the UK on November 6th, but there is some talk it may be pushed back in the US for better Academy Award timing. The film had been on critics' short lists for a Palme d'Or at the Cannes film festival in May, but it came up empty handed.
