Bright Star depicts the real-life love story between the poet John Keats and his muse Fanny Brawne. If the term historical romance scares you off, consider this movie for its own bright star: Abbie Cornish as Brawne. (Watch out for Parks and Recreation's Paul Schneider as friend Charles Armitage Brown, rocking a Scottish brogue as well). If you are rushing the theater for this period piece, take tissues: history didn't make for a happy ending. Bright Star is in theaters Friday.
