Another load of soppy romanitc drivel for the Notebook crowd? Or a well balanced tragedy involving star-crossed lovers which will transcend the standard romantic piffle? We are firmly convinced of the latter, but only cos the film made us cry... Did we say that out loud?
Bright Star is released in cinemas 6th November.
Fan of Campion? Still not forgiven her for In The Cut ? Let us know.
