Fantabulous Movie for Jane Austen lovers everywhere!
This timeless tale of hate that blossoms into love is as good as it
gets. At least once a year my sisters and I watch it all the way
through in one sitting. And that's no easy feat since it's so long!Ohhh
but it's worth it:o) The casting is perfect with Colin Firth playing
the impossible Mr. Darcy and Jennifer Ehll (sp. right?) as the heroine
of the story, Ms. Elizabeth Bennet. The movie captures very well the
society of the time,the difference in stations and the very laid-back
easy-going life-style of an English gentleman and his family of five
daughters. Though Mrs. Bennet gets to be a little much (she must have
been a blast to play she's so obnoxious:o), it's worth watching. The
movie covers about a year, I think, and it follows the life of the five
Ms. Bennets: Jane, Elizabeth, Mary, Kitty and Lydia, and their ups and
downs in life, love, and day to day life. Their are a few unexpected
twists along the way, and many unforgettable characters: those who are
great, and those who are great to make fun of! So... If you enjoy
immersing yourself into the time of Jane Austen for an afternoon, and
enjoy the simplicity of way back when, then you would really enjoy this
