SATUR­DAY BRIGHT STAR

The Sunday Mail (Queensland) - TV Guide - - FRONT PAGE -

2PM, NINE A sick, broke, 19th-cen­tury poet with no prospects and not long to live falls for the girl next door. Catch wind of this ba­sic syn­op­sis and you are quite within your rights to ex­pect a flow­ery cos­tume drama with an in­tol­er­a­bly high pollen count. Well, let me tell you: this is noth­ing to be sneezed at. This classy pe­riod ro­mancer makes light work of a heavy-duty love story for the ages. Your heart will break, your head will swoon and you will hope against hope for a happy end­ing that his­tory will not per­mit. Stars Ab­bie Cor­nish and Ben Whishaw.
