What to do this weekend: watch the 1995 BBC version of Pride and Prejudice.

17 Apr

I’m keeping this short and sweet, because I didn’t think to plan ahead. This is my favorite version of Pride and Prejudice.  I think that, in many ways, it is the definitive version. I found the 2005 movie… let’s say “disappointing”. If you want a version that celebrates Jane Austen’s witty writing and the regency esthetic,  this is the one for you.

I was so happy when I walked into a Blockbuster on my 20th birthday and saw this on sale. It makes me feel sad for the younger generation, who will never know that pleasure.
