Pride and Prejudice

Looks like they're doing another version of Pride and Prejudice for the big screen, this time starring Keira Knightley. I can't imagine it even coming close to tapping the pure perfection that is the A&E/BBC version years ago with Jennifer Ehle and Colin Firth. Funny thing - Keira Knightley is a pretty girl, but very much in a modern sense. She looks very plain in her Regency era dressings, and certainly not the dark beauty that Jennifer Ehle is. I'd really love to see far more of Jennifer Ehle than Keira Knightley, but Keira seems to be slipping into the 20-something waif spot that Winona Ryder has vacated. Interesting. And it comes out a week before Serenity.

  • Blech. I really like the A&E/BBC version. I watched while ill and muchly enjoyed it. Wish I could get FanBoy to sit still and watch it with me.

    I like Keira, but I don't think she'll do a good job either. Additionally, I'm firmly convinced a 1.5-2 hour movie could never do as good of a job as the 6+ hour miniseries. Just because the book is very dense and needs pacing for the romance.
