    Default Bright Star (John Keats movie)

    Can't say I recommend it....visually it was interesting, but I hate to admit that it was boring (and I usually love "boring" movies).

    Anyhow, Keats onscreen managed to stay INFP (maybe why the movie was boring....the life of an INFP...terribly quiet.).

    As for the other main characters:

    Fanny Brawne - ExFP
    Charles Brown - ENTP
    Often a star was waiting for you to notice it. A wave rolled toward you out of the distant past, or as you walked under an open window, a violin yielded itself to your hearing. All this was mission. But could you accomplish it? (Rilke)

    I enjoyed it; it was simple and had a strange quality to it.

    Keats-Yeah, INFP
    Fanny-Hm...ENFP, maybe
    Brown-I could see ENTP

    I pretty much agree with you.

    It's a gorgeous film. But I love poetry, so that helped. It was quiet but I didn't find it the least boring. The romance was...romantic, but convincing. I felt like that was how their story might really have been.

    I'd pretty much agree with the above but I'm pretty sure Fanny is a Sensor. I didn't see either Ni or Ne in her, personally.

    It was more of a hunch than a though-out answer. Yes, ESFP is probably correct.

    As for her mother, I think ISFJ if the rest is correct. Her worry about Fanny marrying Keats because he's poor sounds like an Si thing. Of course, anybody would probably be worried, but her worry seems to be something that's part of her psychology to me rather than reasoning.

    I pretty much agree about the mother. I think ISFJ is most likely.

    Although, the thing about him being poor etc, that was very much a concern of the time period 200 years ago. I think now, people either think about that less, or they think about it in a different way. I think she could also be an SJ-like INFJ... But perhaps ISFJ is more likely.

    Well, of course it was a bigger concern back that, but it still sounds like an Si thing. I mean, if Fanny was ESFP, she would've had Se-Fi, and she didn't really care about Keyne's poorness. Her mother, in contrast, seemed to want the traditional, safe way for her by having her marry a financially-secure man.

    I think poorness is still a concern today. I mean, when we say poor today, it usually means some poorer, middle-class situation. Keynes would've been somewhere along the lines of poor, working-class today. So, it would be something like eating every other day, no access to medication, and perhaps being driven out of your home soon; it's not every parent's dream for their child to end up like this.

    It was beautiful to look at. Not as intellectually stimulating as it might have been. But not boring either. I've watched it several times and never found myself bored. The Scottish accent was distractingly bad. It occasionally descended into mawkish sentimentality, but hey, it's Keats so that's appropriate.
    And really not enough poetry.

    Check out how his eyes move... What's that all about?


    Edit. Yes, I could see ESFP for her. Definitely INFP for him.

    He looks super-nervous in that video...fortunately he was far, far better in the film!

    I thought it was only seldom overly sentimental. A little occasionally, but generally it just had a very true feeling about it for me.
