Oh. My. P&P
My small group leader loaned me the 1995 version of P&P. *faints* Colin Firth! Oh, yes, I'm a full-on Janeite now. It's fun to hear Colin Firth say "She smiles too much." and "She is tolerable." And I loved how the opening P&P line was fit into the script. But, IMO, the Jane Bennet in this version isn't that pretty. Rosamund Pike is a much better Jane. I prefer the 2005 version in the matter of characters, minus Mr. Darcy and this Lizzy. I like both Elizabeths equally. Well, that's for now. We're only 35 minutes into the entire 6 hours. I think I shall try what Mr. and Mrs. Hawthorne do in MDBC sometime.
