Happy Friday!

Time flies and another week will soon be over. I want to spend the weekend watching movies and these are the two I'd like to watch, if I could find the time to do so. Have you watched them? The movie synopses are from ELLE UK's website:

Bright Star. Ben Whishaw and Abbie Cornish star as the poet John Keats and his lover Fanny Brawne in director Jane Campion’s heartfelt study of the pair’s three-year affair. Prepare to be drawn deep into their romance, which starts in 1818 when they become neighbours. Their blossoming relationship is threatened by money (his lack of it), social scruples, Keats' friendship with fellow poet Charles Brown and finally illness, which tragically leads to Keats' untimely death aged 25. This is a quiet but emotionally intense film, a beautiful and intimate depiction of young love and loss, that will leave you reaching for your tissues and the latest edition of Keats' poems.

An Education. Starring Carey Mulligan, this is a witty, smart and moving tale of first love and heartbreak, set in 1960s London. Mulligan plays bright 16-year-old Jenny who is fixated on getting into Oxford University until a mysterious older man (Peter Sarsgaard) sweeps her off her feet, catapulting her into an adult world of city glamour and shady dealings. British stars Emma Thompson, Alfred Molina, Rosamund Pike and Dominic Cooper make up the impressive cast led by director Lone Scherfig.


I'll be visiting and commenting on your blogs this weekend. So far my personal projects are going well. Thank you all for your well wishes!
