Bright Star (2009)

When I saw The Piano for the first time, it changed the way I looked at movies. I went back to see it in the theater at least five times. I've appreciated Jane Campion's films since The Piano, but not until now have I fallen in love with another one of her films. I'm in love and intoxicated by Bright Star. It's absolutely magnificent. I was mesmerized by all three lead performances and inspired by her cinematography and sound design. And ultimately, simply-- I was lost in this love affair.

No question, one of the best films of the year. I'm glad she's back.
