Really like this movie, 9 Feb. 2006
I am writing this review without reading any of the others so here goes. I really liked this film for me Kiera Knightley is at her best since Bend it Like Beckham. And I loved the whole look and feel of this production so much so I bought the dvd but I do have a couple of nit picks.
1 Don't attempt to compare this with any of the tv adaptions because this film lacks much of the wit and humour of both the book and the BBC productions sadly.
2 Donald Sutherland why??? He was so dull and boring when he as Mr Bennett in my view totally miscast.
3 The Lydia & Wickham scandal is so underplayed it has little effect in the movie so that when Lizze recieves her sister letter of the elopment it doesn't have quite the dramatic appeal it should.
Having said all thought I really like the feel of this the various romances are well presented and you get a feel of actual attraction between Lizze and Mr Darcy and I love Mr Bingely and the scene with Darcy & Bingely as Bingely rehearsed his proposal that made me laugh out loud.
For me one to keep.
