Trivia:
The aqua pelisse worn by Anna Madeley (Lucy Steele) at Fanny's London house is the same costume previously worn by Emilia Fox (Georgiana Darcy) at Ramsgate in "Pride and Prejudice" (1995), again by Emilia Fox (Clara Copperfield) in David Copperfield (1999) (TV), by Olivia Williams (Jane Fairfax) at Box Hill in Emma (1996) (TV), and by Julie Cox (Annabella Milbanke) at the London party where she meets Byron in Byron (2003) (TV).See more »

Good, but not quite great version, 1 December 2011
Author: runamokprods from US

A solid adaptation that didn't quite match up to the Ang Lee and Emma Thompson film. That had more energy, pace, intensity and humor. This is more lyrical and gentle, which works almost as well... for a while.

I actually loved the first two hours, but the last hour didn't work as well for me, perhaps because of the different overall tone tone. The climax felt more soap opera-ish, and also more uneven, with the slightly jarring attempts at humorous over the top characterizations clashing with the more subtle feel of the piece. The acting is generally excellent, but there were times when performers didn't quite seem to all be in the same film.

Worth seeing if you are an Austen fan, but if you only need one film version to be happy, I'd watch the Lee feature first.
