The film Bright Star, one of the most highly praised films at this year’s Cannes Film Festival, is a portrait of love and loss between the 19th-century Romantic poet John Keats and the 18-year-old muse next door, Fanny Brawne. Based on the true story, Bright Star chronicles the brief yet torrid love affair between the struggling poet and the girl who would inspire some of the most passionate prose ever written. Academy Award-winner Jane Campion’s return to the big screen features outstanding performances from Abbie Cornish (Stop-Loss, Elizabeth: The Golden Age) as Brawne, Ben Whishaw (I’m Not There, Brideshead Revisited) as Keats and Paul Schneider (NBC’s “Parks & Recreation,” Lars and the Real Girl) as Charles Brown.
In celebration on its theatrical release, a writing contest, “Be My Bright Star Love Letter Contest” is being presented by a Diamond Is Forever and Montblanc. The grand prize winners will receive an Everlon Diamond Pave Ring from ADIF or an Everlon diamond pendant necklace from ADIF.
