I have seen the movie and can thoroughly recommend it! Very different from P&P except for the fact that it is absolutely beautiful to look at.
Keira Knightley – excellent and stunningly beautiful
Aaron Johnson – this surprised me, excellent and stunningly beautiful!
Jude Law – great performance (Oscar?) I was intimated by him never mind Keira LOL!
Now to Matthew: Fabulous performance, from playing Darcy in all his shyness, this character is over the top, full of life, a lovable buffoon! Matthew goes for it, gives it is all. Oh by the way don’t be late for the performance, he is in the very first scene.

Keira’s clothes! ah! all those fur hats and coats and the gowns! I felt the same as I did at a performance of The Nutcracker Suite I saw some years ago, all the delicate colours merging into one another, just an explosion of colour.

Of course it is much, much darker than P&P, I don’t think it is spoiling it to say you need a tissue handy, even if one hasn’t read the book everyone kind of knows what happens, but all in all a very enjoyable movie. Joe Wright used very unusual methods to tell the story which you may have read about. Again don’t want to spoil anything. I wish the US could see it the same time as the UK then I wouldn’t have to worry about spoilers! LOL!

Sharon you will love it, and I think the ladies who post here will too! Funnily enough Matthew’s role is so far removed from Darcy that it doesn’t spoil it for us. He looks so different and has an enormous moustache that you can’t think of him as anything else but Stiva. So P&P remains intact!

I LOVED it, but I see it is in limited cinemas in the US which is disappointing.

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
