I agree with wilburgirl. Movie was great, but you definitely have to watch Pride and Prejudice with Colin Firth before watching it to have a better understanding and appreciation of this movie. Only one thing though, Amanda's singing in front of Darcy, Bingley and Bingley's sister was omitted.
This is a wonderful british production. As a lover of Pride & Prejudice, it was great to see a modern girl transported back into that story and how she is affected and how she affects those in the story. I have watched it twice since I have gotten it and lent it to a friend as well as told several more that I will lend it when I get it back. Costumes and settings are chosen with care and details are perfect. Mr. Darcy made my heart beat fast! Don't miss it.
I caught only a few minutes of this on my local PBS some weeks back and came straight to Overstock the next morning to see if they had it so I could purchase it and see the entire series. It's actually quite entertaining and fun to watch. As a fan of Jane Austin it's interesting to see her stories done in this way and as I said it's quite entertaining. Thanks again Overstock,seems my first choice to look for whatever it is I need or want and more times than not I find what I'm looking for! Thanks Overstock!
Any fan of Pride and Prejudice will enjoy this tongue in cheek version in which a modern day woman trades places with Elizabeth Bennet and, in doing so, changes the events of the book. Watching her try to get things back as they should be provides hours of laughs. Gemma Arterton is a wonderful heroine, Elliot Cowan provides a wonderfully brooding Mr Darcy, and Morven Christie is the most beautiful Jane Bennet I have seen in any version.
