Very funny, very clever, great eye candy
2 December 2003 | by TwoforoneSee all my reviews

I saw Pride & Prejudice at a screening a week ago and absolutely loved it. The movie boasts great production values for such a small project.

The story has been modified and updated from the original source material, but not to the detriment of the spirit of Jane Austen. There were a lot of in-jokes to Austen fans--keep an eye out for the address on the mailbox! The script mixes witty dialogue with physical comedy--something for both senses of humor.

Someone finally made a local movie with decent actors. Kam Heskin is a great Elizabeth. Jane (Sola) is adorable and her counterpart Charles (Gourley) is just delicious--I could eat him up. Darcy (Seale) is appropriately heart-breaking and dashing. Lydia and Kitty were hysterical.

I loved the parallels between 19th Century England and modern Mormons in America. This is a movie in which the characters happens to be LDS, its not a movie about being LDS. That aspect was very refreshing. Are all the characters perfect depictions of model LDS youth? No! And neither are most of the people in my ward. However, I recognized all the characters.

If you go into this movie expecting Singles Ward you might be disappointed. Or you might be thrilled. Pride & Prejudice is infinatly smarter than its Mollywood predecessors. I've heard both sides from people. Those who loved Singles Ward may think that nothing will hold a candle to it. Then there are the people like me, who liked Singles Ward, but are ready for a movie that is more intelligent and has better production values.

In all I can't wait to see Pride & Prejudice again.
