Pride & Prejudice

I popped out to the cinema to see Pride & Prejuidice over the weekend. Depending on what circles you mix, there has been much controversy at the choice of the leading actors, Kiera Knightly and Matthew McFadyen. I was bitten by the the 1995 BBC version, but despite having to tell the story in two hours rather than the TV series twelve hours, the movie is a well made, well told story, with brilliant performances by the two leads at it heart.

I could be churlish and catalog the small critiscims I have, but this is well told and retains the emotional power at the centre of the story. Knightly in particular is marvellous.
