Pride and Prejudice (1995) short review


What can be said that hasn’t been said?  The cause of Austen mania, Darcy mania, Colin Firth mania, Regency mania — it’s all right here.  I borrowed the VHS from a friend in the midst of packing to move, expecting to put it on in the background — needless to say I spent 6 hours (or whatever) sitting on the hardwood floor of my empty living room just RIVETED.  I can watch this over and over for it’s fabulously fun and romantic story line — and the COSTUMES!  HELLO!  Aside from too many low necklines during the day and some definite choices about which characters wear which types of gowns/fabrics, it’s OUTSTANDING.
