I only just heard about the new P&P movie (yes I have been living in a cave) and I have to say I'm ambivalent towards it. It seems risky, creating a new version only 9 years after the BBC mini-series that was simply too good, with casting, with plot progression, with everything. I admit I have serious reservations as to the casting of Keira Knightley. I don't mind her as an actor, I think she has some skill, but I think we're being bombarded with Miss Knightley. She's in everything, and this is annoying. I think a good actor should rest and allow the public to miss them a little as opposed to oversaturating the market. I don't think she's right for the part of Elizabeth. Other actors completely rule, though. Some good casting there.
Also, this is a film isn't it - not a mini-series, so it's going to be difficult to compare it to the beloved P&P of 1995. It would be easier to compare it to the original 1940 film with Greer Garson and Laurence Olivier, to which point it may come up the victor because that film strays from the book like no other (as enjoyable as it is).
I guess we'll see. It's not to be released until next year.
Anyway, that's it I think.
