Pride and Prejudice

Captain's Log, Stardate 06.25.2009

I finally saw the Kiera Knightley movie version and gave my thoughts on it at Faithchick!

Camy here. Most of you know that I’m a pretty die-hard Jane Austen fan. But I had heard so many negative reviews of the Kiera Knightley version of Pride and Prejudice that I put off watching it for a while.

Well, my Tivo has a Wishlist search for Pride and Prejudice and recorded it, so I figured I might as well watch it since it’s taking up memory space on my Tivo and I don’t have to waste a Netflix space on it.

  1. Have you watched Lost In Austen, the BBC series? It's a modern twist to Pride and Prejudice and I love it!
    I also recommend Bride and Prejudice, if you haven't seen it. The Bollywood incorporation made it hilariously funny.

  2. LOVE Lost in Austen & Bride and Prejudice, just had to echo Catherine's recommendation of both films!

  3. With both of you recommending those two, I'll put them on my Netflix queue!

  4. Yes -- I'd definitely recommend Lost in Austen for the way it cleverly reworks the plot, while keeping the characters more or less true to the original. And I've seen Bride and Prejudice so many times! Again, a very skilful adaptation of P&P to a post-colonial context, plus a lot of colour, music and sheer fun.
