Movie Review by Jessica Film Junkie
March 5th, 2007

Excellent Adaptation

Literary adaptations are difficult terrain. Beloved novels can hardly be rightfully displayed in a 2 hour film. Yet sometimes, films come quite close to perfection and this is one of those times.

I was moved by this film: the acting is stellar, the cinematography breathtaking and the wordsmanship accomplished. The scene in the rain with Darcy's confession is smoldering with sexual tension and the confessional scene in the moors practically explodes with chemistry. I really cannot write much about this film other than: GO SEE IT.

Keira Knightley earns her place alongside Scarlett Johansson as among my generation's most talented actresses. She epitomizes the yearning, intelligence and angst of Elizabeth Bennett as well as the grace and beauty her ballerina-esque features allow her.

Matthew MacFayden as Mr. Darcy almost makes me forget Colin Firth. He is appealing yet distant, enrapturing yet enigmatic. One to watch.

As for the rest of the cast, Brenda Blethyn shines as she always does at Mrs. Bennett, while Donald Sutherland takes a laidback approach to Mr. Bennett. The Bennett sisters are played to perfection, most notably Talulah Riley as Mary Bennett, the eldest. She has a face that lights up the screen. And Judi Dench adds a sprinkling of pompous elegance as Lady Catherine.
