"Pride and Prejudice", the movie

I watched this whole movie yesterday. It's a great movie, very interesting. It's a commentary on the superficialiy and silliness of the society Austen lived in, early nineteenth century England. The whole thing lasts six hours, so you need to have some time to kill.

Yeah, Mr. Darcy is one good-looking dude. The girls' mother is so silly, though.

I take it you are talking about the BBC production from approx 1996. It's awesome I don't think there has ever been an adaptation that has done justice to the book to the extent this did.
At the end of the day in story terms you can't beat boy meets girl.
To begin with I thought this thread was about the movie which is in production at the moment. Whoever thought it was a good idea to cast Keira Knightly as Elizabeth wants bloody shooting.

They are re-doing that movie? That's insane! Jennifer Ehle was excellent as Elizabeth.

Yeah, very insane. It's not just the fact that they're going to have to cram it all into two hours but nobody seems to have realised that Keira Knightly can't actually act. The best thing about it was that tons of people turmed down the role of Mr Darcy because of how good Colin Firth was.
On another topic has anybody been to a Pride And Prejudice 'Party'. Basically just popcorn a lot of friends and watching the whole six hours non-stop. Quality evening and not just because I was the only guy there.

There are so many versions of this movie.

I saw a preview for "Bride and Prejudice", a Indian movie that comes out sometime this year....it looks sooo cute!

Does anyone else know what I'm talking about?
