Pride & Prejudice

I absolutely adore Pride & Prejudice. I love love love it. From Lizzy to Mr. Bennett to Mr. Darcy to Jane. They're all just absolutely wonderful.

That being said, I know there are multiple movie (even TV series) versions of this amazing classic. And I have to thank my brother for giving me my absolute FAVORITE of all time. Now, I love Colin Firth. I think he is a phenomenal actor. But the 2005 version of Pride & Prejudice is just all that and a bag of potato chips (buffalo ranch even) if you ask me. I adore Keira Knightly and Matthew Macfadyen is just to die for. Not to mention the scenery is breathtaking as is the soundtrack.

Which version is your favorite?

  1. This is such a devisive topic among P&P fans, but I really don't have a strong opinion. I love the Colin Firth version because it is so true to the novel. You can basically sit with the novel and follow along. But, I also love the Keira Knightly version because it is so artfully done. Beautiful music, beautiful scenery, well done characters, etc. I can't think of a movie scene that has as much suppressed passion as that scene with Elizabeth and Darcy in the rain when he proposes and she turns him down. Love it!
