One Comment on “Bright Star”

    One of the best dramas I’ve seen all year! The cast was amazing, and the music haunting. You should check out the film Bright Star’s official site, where they’ve announced the Love Letter Contest. Those who enter will have to submit a hand-made love letter or love tweet for their chance to win two unique diamonds from A Diamond Is Forever.

    I’m glad Jane campion decided to step back into the director’s chair for this one. I don’t think anyone else could have captured the heart of the story like her.
