Bardem, Bernal, or Cornish?

So as soon as I get an Internet connection (I'm at a Starbucks right now) set up in the apartment, I'm going to try to catch up on everything, including finishing my Movie Lists (made from Entertainment Weekly's 25 Films to See Before Oscar Night lists from 2004 t0 2009). So here I ask you, which one should I watch first:
The Sea Inside, in which Javier Bardem plays a man who fights for his right to be taken off life support? (This won the Foreign Language Oscar for Spain in 2004)
The Motorcycle Diaries, in which Gael Garcia Bernal stars as a young Che Guevara on his way to becoming the famed revolutionary? (This won Best Original Song and was nominated for Best Adapted Screenplay in 2004)
Bright Star, in which Abbie Cornish and Ben Whishaw play Fanny Brawne and John Keats, respectively. (This was, surprisingly, only nominated for Best Costume Design in 2009, despite being touted for so much more)
This three are the only ones on the List available as an instant play on Netfilx, so that why they're kind of random. Anyway, tell me what you think, and I'll be back soon.

Thanks for the suggestions. I still think it's terrible that I haven't seen these yet. But I'm glad you can vouch for two of them!
