Pride & Prejudice

We went to see Pride and Prejudice last Saturday. Unfortunately it was at the local theater that makes my legs hurt! I wish the theater with the good seats would start getting the movies I want to see. Harry Potter, Star Wars, they’ve all been at the other theater. Argh. I need to write a letter.

But, that’s not what the blog is about. Here is wholly detailed commentary regarding the film, but let me add a few wrinkles:

  • Keira Knightley’s smile is way to weird to have been in Edwardian England. She would have been burned as a witch or something
  • The woman who played Jane is the same woman who played the blond double-agent in Die Another Day, and the closeups on her DARK brown eyebrows with the blond hair were very distracting
  • There is a beautiful marble bust featured in the film (when Elizabeth is visting Darcy’s manor) which is a carving of a woman with a veil. It was difficult to tell if the veil was part of the carving or if it was actually a silk veil. Very neat
  • Make sure you bring tissues to give to the woman next to you during this film. “Are you crying? There’s no crying in Jane Austen!”

    There is so crying in Jane Austen! Especially when fathers get weepy. And I wasn’t the only one. The whole audience was sniffling.
