I recently rented the latest movie version of Pride and Prejudice. I liked it and felt it captured some of the spirit of the book, but it was not my favorite. Mr. Darcy grew on me, but I did not like Mr. Bingley. Of course it had to be shortened from the book which did force some changes. Dame Judy Dench was great in her role as Lady Catherine. I think I prefer the older BBC Pride and Prejudice mini-series, that one also felt more British. And it reminded me that I wanted to re-watch Bride and Prejudice, the Bollywood version which I thought captured spirit of the book quite well. Anything Jane Austen reminds me of Professor Ruff and his overwhelming love of all things Jane, which led to her portrait being included on the Humanities Building due to his lobbying.
