Oh, you wise, wise people. This conversation does my heart good. The Kiera Knightley version is NOT Pride and Prejudice nor will it ever be. It gets SO much wrong, as already noted here. It also chops the story up into pieces. I call it Wuthering Prejudice.
the 1995 A&E version I’ve watched twice in the last week alone and reread every Austen novel. It is about as close to perfect as you can get though I would have loved some of the conversation between Darcy and Elizabeth after they got together to make it into the miniseries. I would have loved a scene of her telling her mother too.
