Over a Collider they just released a ton of photos from films that will be premiering over at the Toronto Film Festival. The first batch of photos that we are posting are from two upcoming period pieces. The first is Creation starring Paul Bettany as Charles Darwin and Jennifer Connelly as his religious and yet faithful wife. The second is Bright Star starring Ben Whishaw as John Keats and Abbie Cornish as his inspiration for his poem (you guessed it) “Bright Star.”
Check out the photos below…
Overall, both these films deal with enlightenment and share a similar tone and color palate. Both Darwin and Keats were creative leaders of their own fields and had strong women behind them. Although the films deal with two completely different subject matters, it looks like they would make for a rather similar and pleasant double feature.

For those of you who don’t know Keats poem “Bright Star” it’s absolutely beautiful, check it out…
Bright Star, would I were steadfast as thou art -
Not in lone splendour hung aloft the night,
And watching, with eternal lids apart,
Like Nature’s patient sleepless Eremite,
The moving waters at their priestlike task
Of pure ablution round earth’s human shores,
Or gazing on the new soft-fallen mask
Of snow upon the mountains and the moors-
No-yet still steadfast, still unchangeable,
Pillow’d upon my fair love’s ripening breast,
To feel for ever its soft fall and swell,
Awake for ever in a sweet unrest,
Still, still to hear her tender-taken breath,
And so live ever-or else swoon to death.
What do you think of the photos?
