When it comes to Pride and Prejudice, I will read or watch anything, but somehow I had managed to miss what is considered THE Pride and Prejudice miniseries, so thanks to my lovely library I remedied that. Sorry Keira Knightly, but I have a new Elizabeth Bennet and her name is Jennifer Ehle.
In fact, all of the actors in this mini series are PERFECT. I can’t even describe how perfect they are. Bingley makes me want to curl up in a ball of squees every time he’s on screen. Colin Firth as Darcy *fans self* The only character I was disappointed in was Wickham, but I am unusually picky about my Wickhams.
And it’s so much truer to the book than the movie adaptation because it’s like six hours so there’s TIME to tell the STORY. Characters that are missing from the movie, exist in the mini-series. And I suddenly understand the importance of eyes in acting. The eyes are everything.
If you are a Pride and Prejudice fan, it is a total must-watch and completely worth the time. It is gorgeous you guys. Totally gorgeous and feel-making.
(While I’m on the topic of P&P, you also need to check out The Lizzie Bennet Diaries, which is a modern retelling of P&P through vlogs, twitter, and tumblr. It is brilliant!)
