"And yet I am unmoved."

Great line from a great movie. I watched Pride and Prejudice this weekend with my wife. I really enjoy the story and it was nice to finally get a chance to see the BBC version. It was, originally, a miniseries and now is a five hour movie over two DVDs. We didn’t watch it in a single sitting, but broke it up over two nights. (And had it further broken up by having to pause it fairly frequently to deal with one or both of our daughters who, though in bed, did sometimes need to be attended to.) I really do think that Mr Bennet gets all the really good lines despite being only a supporting character. People talk about this book as if it were merely chick-lit. It’s not. If you haven’t read it, do so. It’s a nice story with marvelous characters and sparkling dialogue. And the movie versions aren’t bad either.
