Compare and contrasts your favorite movie version of Pride and Prejudice with the book. Do you like either one better? What makes the book or film better than the other?
the 2005 version is hands down the best version. not only is the cinematography and musical score great, but the actors nailed their roles to the T. i hadnt seen the movie until last year, and it honestly made me want to read Austen's pride + prejudice novel (and especially since i hadnt read any of them anyway). even though ive seen the movie before reading, i still enjoyed the book more, the humor in it always caught me off guard, in the best way. im not so sure that the movie gave insight to Austen's wit.
yet the movie is still true to the basics of what the story is about: that pride and prejudice (obviously) can blind a person just as much as love can. though the book never expressed much, if at all, sexual tension, the presence of such in the movie made it much more modern and therefore relatable to current culture. so if you like wit, read the book, and if you like matthew macfadyen and kiera knightley in the rain, i suggest the movie. :)
