I was right. I actually sat thru the 2005 “Pride and Prejudice” with Kiera Knightly. It was bad. Reallyreallyreally bad.

I knew it. But, had to verify my belief.

The sad thing is, the movie COULD have been decent, or even good. The sets and costumes were among the most accurate I’ve seen out of Hollywood. But, the dialogue! Oh, Heaven help me. Poor Jane. They took her perfect, witty, social commentary and butchered it.

AAAND, they made Darcy soppy.

Can’t forgive that.

Also: Bingley was silly, B only had one sister, Jane was sassy, and the Bennetts were in love. It… oh.

Anyway. There’s my semi-annual film critique. Make what you will of it.

About the Author fyberduck

I love socks, lace, and all sorts of ‘traditional’ knitting subjects. I studied Classics and textile history (independent minor) at Uni and have a love of anything ancient. That said, I also like to mix it up with modern shapes and silhouettes, often with a little tradition thrown in for fun.
