Pride and Prejudice without Colin?!

Writing about web page http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0414387/

Pride and Prejudice the film is out soon. Now don't we all think this may be a bit too soon? Is there anyone who feels the Colin Firth/Jennifer Ehle chemistry in the 5-hour BBC version needs replacing quite yet? No way. They still capitalise on Colin being Darcy – the last Bridget Jones film along these lines only came out last year.

Plus. Keira Knightley as Miss Bennett?!! No!!!! Elizabeth Bennett is feisty, intelligent, sharp, even sly, mysterious, and a nineteenth century version of sarcastic.

I will see it and I will judge. Probably condemn. It will have to be like Austen speaking from the grave to win over many many hard core fans of the BBC version.

I will rant more when I see it. But for now, I leave my blog with one final criticism to offer… the BBC version is 5 hours of pure brilliance. If Austen speaks from the grave it will because she's sobbing at the thought of her book being cut down to 2 hours max.

Saying this – Judi Dench is in it and Judi's wonderful.
