Jane Campion’s film about the slowly blossoming relationship between John Keats and Fanny Brawne during the last three years of the young poet’s life is that comparatively rare thing: a sensitive, unsentimental portrait of a writer, which feels unusually authentic in its treatment of the relationship between art and life. The fine cast does ample justice to Campion’s imaginative, respectful but never overly reverential script.
