Pride and Prejudice

**** /****



This has to be one of the best, and most faithful, adaptations of a classic novel ever transfered to film. I have loved this novel most of my life an have no idea why I never saw this version. It is magnificent.

A couple of weeks ago I said some very unkind things about Joe Wright for inflicting the horrible The Soloist on the world but with P&P he has created a very beautiful film.

The famous proposal was absolutely perfectly shot. It is one of my favorite film scenes of all time now.

I share your sentiments.  I really loved it.  Wish I cold have seen it in 3D.  My biggest blunder of the year.

The worst thing is watching the 3D version on the DVD.  It's like a cruel joke.

Nobody does it like Polanski, watch Rosemary's baby if you haven't already.

On it. I am going to demolish his entire works. He is 3/3 so far. Repulsion, Chinatown and The Pianist are all masterpieces.

Don't forget Knife in the Water.

Um, no. You may like the movie as much as you like, but please, please do not call this film a faithful adaptation.

He's right.  Most faithful.  Sorry.  I've read the book 4 times, twice since seeing the film.  Its bang on.

I think 1995 mini-series is a much more faithful adaptation.  The film is just too short for the novel, some compromises had to be made.
