Book-Based-Movies
24 June 2004 | by LizzybitsySee all my reviews

I am almost always opposed to the adaptation of books into movies because I have never seen a book-based-movie retain the complete delight of the book it was based upon. The very old version of "Scrooge" from the days of black and white and this version of "Pride and Prejudice" have thus far been the two book-based-movies in which I was able to find the same delights as in the book and, most importantly, an earnest desire to stay as faithful to the novel, and the novelist's intentions, as possible. No unnecessary changes were made, and nothing added that did not come from the book was added superfluously. My grateful thanks and admiration to the writer.

The cast flows together as though they live in Austen's England. They were clearly hand-selected for their individual roles, and yet no one oversteps his or her bounds. The sets are real standing mansions, and when one reads a credit for a "Period Chef," one knows every possible measure was taken to ensure the accurate portrayal of life at that time right down to the smallest detail. The music is brilliant in all its simplicity, and the costumes designed beyond perfection.

This is the most perfect movie I have ever seen, and I love it as much as I love the book. I can not give it any higher compliment than that.
