Oh you pretty, pretty little thing. You exquisitely wonderful man . . . Ben Whishaw has the innocent beauty of an ingenue, but he is able to take his characters to a darkly tragic level. Some skillz. You may have seen him as the hapless Pingu in Nathan Barley, or as Grenouille the murderer in the adaptation of Suskind’s Perfume, but it is as Keats in Jane Campion’s ethereal film Bright Star in which he shines the brightest. Sensitive and understated as an actor, he will surely become a truly great performer. One whom we remember. Plus he wears a slim-cut suit like a fucking don. Sadly ladies, it seems that THOSE OTHER ONES have claimed him as their own. But, you know, we live in hope, etc.
