Dd and I saw the new Pride and Prejudice today. I wasn't impressed when I saw the trailer. I'm not a huge fan of Kiera Knightly. But this was a very satisfying, romantic movie. I definitly got into Matthew MadFayden as Mr. Darcy. And Donald Sutherland was touching as her father.
It was far from perfect. The sub plot regarding the cad Mr. Wickham was not fleshed out well enough. I had to explain why/how Mr. Wickham had run away with Lydia and why this was bad and how Mr. Darcy forced him to marry Lydia.
Of course, we'd just watched Ang Lee's Sense and Sensibility, a superior movie. But this was good and we'll get the dvd.
