Pride & Prejudice

Monday, April 09, 2007

After watching the movie Pride & Prejudice starring Keira Knightley as Elizabeth Bennet, I couldn't help feeling curious about the novel & decided to google about it. All this while, I'm aware that the book of similar title was written by the renowned Jane Austen who also wrote Sense & Sensibility. Surprised I was when I found out that the book was written in the 1800s! No wonder the language is so rich & refined.

The story is pretty interesting as it highlights on Mr Darcy's pride, Elizabeth Bennet's prejudice towards him & how it led to conflicts which prevented them from confessing their love for each other. Sad to say, I found the movie quite a rush as it struggled to keep up with the time frame in the novel & compressed it into a solid 2 hour film. It would make more sense to read the book to capture the full details of the story & fill up the gaps left by the movie.

Nevertheless, I was impressed that the movie managed to keep me entertained all the time. It doesn't matter if the pace was too fast. The simplicity is good enough for me to fully grasp the story. I love the show, really! Y'all should watch it ^^. Warning: Not recommended to audiences who dislike romantic movies.
