Pride and Prejudice (2005)
The visuals are for this version much grittier and more realistic than previous versions. There is much more of a difference between Longborn and Netherfield Park. I don’t really like this version of Longborn with pigs in the kitchen and all. It is a little too gritty to my taste and doesn’t seem the house of a gentleman to me.
I know I will get butchered here by Matthew McFadyen fans, but he seems way too cold and can I say, awkward. Colin Firth (aka the perfect Mr. Darcy), had Mr. Darcy down pat. He was austere, but yet had a certain look in his eye that promised much more.
I like how the actors portraying the characters appear to be the correct age in this movie and not far too old as they often area.
