London 1818: a secret love affair begins between 23 year old English poet, John Keats, and the girl next door, Fanny Brawne, an outspoken student of fashion. This unlikely pair started at odds; he thinking her a stylish minx, she unimpressed by literature in general. It was the illness of Keats's younger brother that drew them together. Keats was touched by Fanny's efforts to help and agreed to teach her poetry. By the time Fanny's alarmed mother and Keats's best friend Brown realised their attachment, the relationship had an unstoppable momentum. Intensely and helplessly absorbed in each other, the young lovers were swept into powerful new sensations, "I have the feeling as if I were dissolving", Keats wrote to her. Together they rode a wave of romantic obsession that deepened as their troubles mounted. Only Keats's illness proved insurmountable.

Jane Campion, the only female director in Cannes Film Festival history to win the Palme d'Or, threw a punch at the male-dominated film industry during Cannes' inaugural jury press conference. Campion, this year's jury president, stated, 'There is inherent sexism in the industry. ... It does feel very undemocratic.'
This past weekend, the 67th Cannes Film Festival concluded. Not surprisingly, the festival continued its streak of bestowing the top prize--the Palme d'Or--on a man. Specifically, Xavier Dolan for his film 'Mommy.' It's very hard to win when there were only two women-directed films competing against 16 male-directed films. However, the Jane Campion-led jury did give the Grand Prix award--the second prize--to 33-year-old Italian writer and director Alice Rohrwacher, for her film 'The Wonders.
In 86 years, only four women have been nominated for a best director Oscar. Only one, Kathryn Bigelow, has won. Lina Wertmuller was the first woman nominated for the 1976 film, Seven Beauties . Jane Campion was number two for the 1993 film, The Piano . Sofia Coppola is number three for the 2003 film, Lost in Translation , and number four is the only one to make it to the podium, Kathryn Bigelow for her film The Hurt Locker .
