| Jane Austen for ever
Jane Austen's tale of love and economics reaches us once more with the energy of a thorough novelty. "Pride and Prejudice" has been a favorite novel of mine since I first read it and I've seen Laurence Olivier and Greer Garson, Colin Firth and Jennifer Ehle and now Matthew MacFadyen and Kiera Knightly. Amazingly enough I've never been disappointed. The material seems to be full proof. Colin Firth's Darcy, in many ways, is the Darcy I've always imagined. He's been an actor I've followed feverishly since his glorious Adrian LeDuc in "Apartment Zero", Matthew MacFadyen was totally new to me but he managed to create that sense of longing that makes that final pay off so satisfying. Kiera Knightly is a ravishing revelation. I must confess, I didn't remotely imagined that she was capable of the powerful range she brilliantly shows here. The other big surprise is Joe Wright, the director, in his feature film debut which is more than promising, it's extraordinary. The photography, the art direction and the spectacular supporting cast, in particular Donald Sutherland and Brenda Blethyn, makes this new version of a perennial classic a memorable evening at the movies

Trivia

At the beginning of the movie, Elizabeth is shown reading a novel titled "First Impressions" - this was Jane Austen's original title of her novel before she altered it to "Pride and Prejudice". Additionally, the text of the visible pages is readable when paused; it is the last chapter of "Pride and Prejudice", with names changed.


Quotes

Jane Bennet: Lydia. Kitty.


Goofs

At the beginning of the film, the Sun is on one side of the house, Lizzie walks from the rear to towards the front of the house, the camera enters a doorway to show Mary playing inside Longbourn, the Sun is low in the sky from the other side of the house. The scene has been filmed as a continuous shot but it is impossible for the Sun to have moved. In the commentary the director explains that the scene was cut as Lizzie passes behind some laundry - not "to indicate a passing of time" - but because he wanted to use the Sun from both sides of the house. He hoped the audience would "not notice the two Suns". It is a goof but it was intentionally done to make filming easier.


Crazy Credits

Thanks to ... The Dromgoole family ... all at Sands Films ... Andrew and Pippa Reis and family ... the residents and businesses of Stamford Lincolnshire.


Alternate Versions

US version has a different ending: after Mr. Bennet and Elizabeth's conversation, a scene follows where Darcy and "Mrs. Darcy" are at Pemberly talking about their happiness.
