So, I'm a Keira Knightly fan, and all, but um, yeah. I'm not so sure about this new Pride and Prejudice.
Maybe it's just the forced zaniness of the trailer, or maybe it's that stupid narration starring the ubiquitous trailer voice. Here's a sample: "the story of a modern woman... who discovered the one person she cannot stand is the one man she may not be able to resist."
Oh, fuck no! You do not reduce Pride and Prejudice to a fucking one-liner.
Or, maybe, you do, but seriously, it isn't that. If anything, it's the first line of the book. But then again, that might sound odd & pretentious, from the mouth of the ubiquitous narrator.
Anyway, give me the BBC miniseries production any day.
