    :O Not only a wonderful book, but a GREAT movie!! I could watch that all day long!!! Great pick too–soft and feminine, but strong, just like Lizzie Bennett :)

    one of most favorite movies of all time, the version with Colin Firth is the best but I like the lastest version very much as well, I own at least 3 different versions of the film as well (own the book too, me likely Jane Austen!)

    it is Lizzy, isn’t it? yes, I love the movie – it airs rather often, and I can’t help myself…… ah, period romance – one of my favorite escapes! Thank you!

    I have at least 3 versions of each of the Jane Austen novels that have been made into films, with the exception of Northanger Abbey, I have only found 2 versions of it, no version for the big screen has ever been made (to my knowledge).

    I LOVE Pride and Prejudice!!! (though the movies are so much more romantic than the book! They‘ve been modernized to suit our current “happily ever after“ and “true love“ tastes!) No Mr. Darcy can beat Collin Firth!! Keira Nightly did a good job as Elizabeth! My friend was lucky enough to meet a man who also likes Pride and Prejudice!! Can you believe that?!! He actually OWNS the old 5 hour (or whatever) virsion!!!!! And they watched it together!!! Now THAT’S romantic!!! :)
    This pick is perfect!! Sweet, soft and romantic!!

    Smoky Rose says:

    OMG Y’all love Pride and Prejudice too? I read that book every year, just about late winter going into spring. Amazing. Love almost all versions of the movie.

    First read it in high school, when I had to do a research paper related to it…and I still love it anyway!
    Great pick, and the brass pieces bring out the lace I think of in that time period.
    Would you believe: That infamous research paper was a comparison between the clothing styles (mentioned and actually worn in the time period) of 2 famous books: Pride and Prejudice, and Gone With The Wind. Sorry, very convoluted sentence.

  27. Smoky Rose
    Smoky Rose says:

    very cool sounding paper! wow! if I could have done a cool paper like that, I may have actually read the book, instead of the Cliffs! ;)
    Thank you!
