*Pride and Prejudice

The glorious world of Jane Austen is at last brought back to the big screen in all its romance, wit, and emotional force in Pride & Prejudice. Faithful to the setting and period of the beloved novel and filmed entirely on location in the U.K, this is the first movie version of the story in 65 years.


The classic tale of love and misunderstanding unfolds in class-conscious England near the close of the 18th century. The five Bennet sisters – Lizzie, Jane, Lydia, Mary, and Kitty – have been raised well aware of their mother’s fixation on finding them husbands and securing set futures. The spirited and intelligent Elizabeth, however, strives to live her life with a broader perspective...

Two thumbs up from me for the wonderfully enlightening movie!

Hmmm, interesting perspective on women....I suppose, in some aspects. Personally, I to just take risk of "maybe & maybe not's," skipping pass comformity.

On another note, I still haven't seen this movie, maybe I thought I did confusing it with "Sense and Sensibiltiy" which I only saw bits and pieces of.

Honestly I haven't watched the movie. But I've read the book for some school project, and I really enjoyed reading every bits of it.. Definitely one of the best piece of Jane Austen..And well, until today, this kind of issue is still very happening among us..As for me, I'd rather go with what I want, instead of what people expect me to do/want..Actually I'm struggling with lots of that, during this wedding preparation *sigh*

It's never too late to catch up, Abby darling. I'll be waiting for that post of yours!

The end saying is from Candace Bushnell's Lipstick Jungle novel, juicy j. I'm loving both the book and the movie. Especially Victory Ford's character!!!

I love love love English classic literature. I just don't understand why people find boring!!! Yea Live, I too think it's relevant to today's life. Good luck with all the wedding preparation! Enjoy every bits and pieces of it, deary :) (The quarrells as well. Hihihi).

See, even guys like it. I can't believe some people find Bushnell's work "cheesy". You rock Jak. Best pal!

Really, Renee? Thanks for letting me know then. I'm so watching the older version!!!

You busy, busy girl Valen. What other projects are you working on rather than managing a magazine, running two blogs, working on a thesis and doing ministries at chuch. Ckckckckck. No wonder you scored 88!
