The 2005 Pride and Prejudice Movie is #2

“Ease your high standards for Austen faithfulness and enjoy some gorgeous English scenery, and don’t think too hard about why everyone seems to go tromping about in the same foggy field at sunrise.”

The Lizzie Bennet Diaries is #6

“The series is a little limited by its form, but it still manages to add new dimensions to beloved characters, particularly wild child Lydia Bennet.”

Bride and Prejudice is #7

“This adaptation features the worst Mr. Darcy (sorry, Martin Henderson, but just being handsome doesn’t cut it). While Bollywood song and dance numbers are an improvement over stuffy balls, and former Miss World Aishwarya Rai glows in the Lizzie Bennet role, the film is still kind of a mess.”

Lost in Austen is #9

“But Lost misses its marks as often as it hits them—and has a hard time tying up all the plots it spun off.”

Although the 2005 P&P movie is fantastic, there are many differences between the movie and the original book. (Here is a link to a quick, easy and funny youtube explaining them.)

Some key differences she states in the video:

-In the movie we have the intense scene when Darcy touches Elizabeth’s hand without a glove. We do not see this in the bookof that

-Mentions in book that Jane spends nights in Lizzie’s room but never tells about how they had pillow talk under the covers in the book

-In the movie Bingley comes into the Room that Jane is sick and sleeping in at his home, and Darcy comes into the room Lizzie is in to give her the note towards the end. In the book the men never go into the girls’ rooms. This would not happen

-in the book it was not raining when Darcy confessed his love (but we love it anyway, am i right)

-Darcy and Elizabeth making out is not in the book
