Plain Sewing On The Big Screen 

Jane Campion's film Bright Star based on the short but intense Regency romance of John Keats and Fanny Brawne has my vote for good watching on several fronts.
I must admit I'm a pushover for lush costuming, nearly airbrushed cinetography and unabashed romance. When you put all these in the hands of Jane Campion (a producer/director of all things wonderful from Down Under) you have a winner in my book!!!
Those of you who know me know how I can, and do, natter on about my love of plain sewing skills and plain sewing samplers.
Any movie with titles of demonstration of plain sewing skills as well as dialog about this special needle artistry can't lose in my book so this is one of "Linn's run, don't walk" to see this film. I found it on Netflix but I'm sure it is available from other resources.
