Man! Is it ever tough to pick scenes! Now that I have decided to do this, the challenge will be to make the selection. And, to limit my own musings so others can get a word in edgewise! I really do appreciate the discussion that was generated with the first set of pics. I hope this will continue to be fun for you gals and that even more of you readers will bravely join in! I will not always zero in on Lizzy and/or Mr. Darcy. I mean, it is hard not to focus on that man’s gorgeous face, but there were other characters in the movie….right? But for now, I just can’t resist.
The Piano Scene…. Or, where Darcy shows his sensitive side and Lizzy gets snippy. This is the scene where I think I really began to feel sorry for and like Mr. Darcy. Remember, I went into the theater that first day with zero knowledge of the plot. Oh sure, I knew they would end up together, so obviously he wasn’t the Bad Man she thought he was. But, let’s face it, he was a bit nose-in-the-air and aside for incredible good-looks, he left much to be desired. Until here. There were hints of the softie inside before, but at the piano was when I began to really feel for how shy and awkward he was. And how rude and obtuse Lizzy was. It is so clear when he haltingly reveals how difficult it is for him to make conversation that he is extending a very personal confession. But Lizzy completely misses it! Why? Is she even trying to listen to him? And what is he thinking/feeling as he looks back at her? I have my ideas, but want to hear what some of you think first, so, go for it!
