Based on the doomed affair between English poet John Keats (a likable Ben Whishaw) and Fanny Brawne (Abbie Cornish) -- whom Keats deemed the "bright star" of his work -- Jane Campion's romance is as heady as expensive floral perfume. Recalling a young Nicole Kidman, Cornish delivers her most memorable performance yet. (Sony Pictures, $28)
