Starring: Gwyneth Paltrow, Aaron Eckhart
Genre: Drama, Romance,
Plot: Two researchers both working on biographies of famous poets from the 1800's, find themselves working together to uncover a possible affair between the two poets.
This is a lovely story about four people who come together because they all had a love for writing. Two in the Victorian era, two in the modern age.
This brings up the topic of commitment, and how real love can catch a person off guard. It also shows an overly romantic view of romance itself.
Both the poets -Ash and Christabel- are in other relationships when they first meet. At first, they try to keep their relationship as just friends but soon find themselves in a heated affair. One that blurs the lines for all involved.
I find myself coming back to this movie for the fact their love was so honest.
What do I think I learned from this film?
Passion can arrive like a storm cloud and leave in it's wake as much damage as it does joy. And love letters never go out of style.
