When Mrs. Bennet's sister comes, delivering Jane from London, Kitty comes into the room crying. When Mrs. Bennet's sister says, "They probably can't afford it," her mouth is still moving after the line has ended. See more »
Having attended a regional charity premiere last night I can safely say that the actors chosen have more than succeeded in bringing their characters to life. This adaptation hit the perfect note every time in terms of humour, romance and warmth. Keira Knightley plays a wonderfully spirited Lizzie and MacFayden really hits the spot as a dour yet shy Darcy. The whole cast throw themselves into their roles with gusto and overall the film left this viewer charmed and delighted. Its obviously going to have a tough time proving itself to those who loved the BBC adaptation as that seems to have become for so many THE adaptation of the novel, but give this one a chance, those that don't will be missing out. Sorry to keep this brief but I don't want to be accused of giving anything away!
