This weekend was a "stay in and lounge on the couch" kind of weekend. Because my hubby is so wonderful, he let me pop in my favorite movie, Pride and Prejudice. I think he actually enjoyed it, too! Even though I'm not a huge fan of Keira Knightly (she puckers her mouth too much!!), I liked her as Elizabeth. I think that this version was well cast and I really like the music. The cinematography is really nicely done, too.
I have always heard, though, that the BBC mini-series version of P&P is much, much better. So we decided to give that a try to compare as well.
We didn't make it all the way through. No, not because it's six hours long. I can't put my finger on it, but something just really rubbed me the wrong way. Maybe the girl who plays Elizabeth? Or maybe it's actually Mr. Firth himself. As much as I think he's a jolly, good-natured guy, I don't see him much as a Darcy.
I think I'm going to make many enemies with this post - everyone seems to prefer the BBC version! What's so great about it?
