SATURDAY BRIGHT STAR
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.
