Pleasantly surprised Austen fan
8 December 2003 | by (Utah) – See all my reviews

Let me say that first that I had serious reservations about this film right from the start - I'm a huge Jane Austen fan and have about worn out the tapes of the Pride and Prejudice miniseries, I can't imagine anything topping that treatment.

I was very pleasantly surprised. This movie takes another route than the miniseries. While staying true to the themes of the novel, the movie adds a modern twist to the characters and ideas. And, I might add, it's hilarious - smartly so - and a real treat to watch. My boyfriend, whom I had to drag along, ended up liking the film as much as I did.

First of all, this film has a great look. The art direction really stands out and gives the characters a fresh, hip backdrop to play against. And what a smart idea to put this in a Mormon setting - I have friends who are Mormons and it seems like the whole marriage thing is a pretty big deal in that culture, and the dating scene seems to be a lot more traditional and consistent with "old fashioned courtship." So it felt like a great setting for this version.

The chemistry between the two leads is very believable - subtle while at the same time quite powerful, even from their first meeting at the party.

I would have liked to see more of the Charles Bingley character - Ben Gourley is fun to watch and stole pretty much every scene he was in.

The breakout performance is undoubtedly Kelly Stables who plays Lydia - this girl has a bright future ahead of her. She's a great example of the depth of the development of these characters - Stables plays Lydia big, loud and spunky on the outside, but her portrayal of Lydia in the last part of the film is soft and very vulnerable, adding a whole dimension to the character that makes her much more believable and real.

The writing in this film is quick and witty - not a lot of hit-you-over-the-head type gags that I was dreading. The movie earns its laughs instead of going for the cheap jokes. And there's a whole layer of stuff in there for us Janeites - check out the name on the mailbox or the menu at the restaurant for starters. . . fun references abound.

I'll probably head back to see this movie again this weekend, as I'm sure there's a lot I missed, while I was bracing myself for the terrible movie I was sure this was going to be.

All in all, I am hugely relieved and actually excited to see what these actors do next.
