#JaneAusten200 7 Things That Make #JoeWright's #PrideandPrejudice2005 🎞 the Perfect #JaneAusten Film via @FocusFeatures . . For Austen fans unable to make the pilgrimage to Hampshire, England, may we suggest another way to celebrate: Rewatch Joe Wright’s Pride & Prejudice. It perfectly captures what ardent fans love about Austen’s work. “I can't imagine a better introduction to this classic,” writes the San Francisco Chronicle. Starring #KeiraKnightley as the sparkling #ElizabethBennet 👒 and #MatthewMacfadyen as the reserved #MrDarcy 🎩, the film only improves with age. 1) It makes the past feel modern. 2) #KeiraKnightley gives Lizzie brains and beauty. Wright stayed true to the novelist’s sensiblity when he cast Knightley as the indomitable Lizzie. Thinking at first the 19-year-old actress might be too pretty for the part, Wright soon “discovered she had incredible wit and intelligence and a very strong personality”––all the things that make Elizabeth Bennet so unforgettable. 3) #MatthewMacfadyen's Mr. Darcy proves irresistible. As USA Today’s Claudia Puig writes, “the movie belongs to dark-haired, blue-eyed Matthew Macfadyen.” 😍😉 4) Not a drop of Austen’s comic wit is lost. 5) It doesn’t shy away from the period’s vivid realism. 6) From Dame #JudiDench to #DonaldSutherland, it’s packed with amazing talents. 7) It reminds us all what falling in love really feels like. Wright conjures up an equally enchanting chemistry by casting Knightley and Macfadyen. “When he was Darcy and she was Lizzie something happened.” Wright explains. “Keira and Matthew were just wicked together.” ❤️😍❤️😍 . .
