Trivia

John Keats' poems used in the film are: Endymion, When I Have Fears That I May Cease to Be, The Eve of St Agnes, Ode to a Nightingale, La Belle Dame Sans Merci and Bright Star.
The main star of the film, Ben Whishaw met his husband, composer Mark Bradshaw while both were working on this film. They got civilly married in 2012.
The film shot for one day in Rome. Keats' funeral procession was the last scene to be filmed and the only scene of the film not shot in the UK. This exterior location, in Piazza di Spagna, is the actual residence Keats stayed, and died, in. It now houses the Keats - Shelley House museum.
Abbie Cornish was the first actress to audition for the part, and waited one month to hear that she got it.
The Hyde House and Estate in Hyde, Bedfordshire substituted for the Keats House in Hampstead. Jane Campion decided that the Keats House (also known as Wentworth Place) was too small and "a little bit fusty".
