Movies: Pride & Prejudice

Once again our father has gone out of town (currently he's in Chicago), and left us alone with our desperate-for-romance mother. So we were stuck last night watching Pride & Prejudice, the one with Keira Knightley. If you're in the mood for a great romance, Jane Austen can never go wrong, and this movie is a great rendition of her greatest novel.

Mr. Bingley moves into the shire bringing along with him his evil sister and his proud friend, Mr. Darcy. Immediately, he catches the eye of the oldest of the Bennett girls, Jane. Her younger sister Elizabeth is slighted by Mr. Darcy, until he begins to fall in love with her. The soundtrack and scenery are remarkable, and very well done.

Quick vote: This is perhaps the greatest love story of all time, and this movie surely does it justice.
