Why I like Pride & Prejudice

We watched the Focus Features version of Pride & Prejudice last night. This one is such a beautiful film, and as a card-carrying male, I proudly admit I really love it.

The visual composition and cinematography in this film are wonderful and really add depth to Jane Austen's novel. For example:

Beautiful outdoor scenes:

...and this fantastic shot, which is composed like an 18th-century painting:

A minor detail in that last shot that's worth pointing out: The director arranged the three men according to social class: upper, middle, lower.

If you haven't seen the film, go watch it! It's a good love story, too. Wink wink!

P.S. See if you can find Megan's favorite part of the film, shown below:

This is one of my favorite films (based on my favorite novel of all time) and that scene is when Mr. Darcy first proposes to Elizabeth, in the rain. Love it!
