I went to see this movie, not because I know a lot about poetry or John Keats, but because I am a fan of the genre; that is to say the 'period piece', especially when done by a British team. The love story of Keats & Fanny could have sizzled on the screen but instead I found this movie to be one of the most boring I've ever seen. It was like watching paint dry. The screenplay was poorly thought out, left me confused and there was absolutely no chemistry between the two main characters. Their scenes together provided some of the worst moments in the movie. Although Keats untimely death no doubt was a tragedy for Fanny and arguably the world of literature, watching this movie, I for one was grateful he did not live a longer life. That would have meant a longer movie and that would not have been bearable.
