Three sentence movie reviews: Pride and Prejudice (2005)

Inexplicably set in the 1860s, I spent a lot of the movie contemplating just how big the women’s sleeves were. Aldous Huxley, (of Brave New World fame) co-wrote the script and I found Lawrence Oliver to be a delightful Mr. Darcy. Not surprisingly, considering we’re talking Hollywood here, the story was changed a bit, the most egregious example being the shifting of the role of Lady Catherine de Bourgh’s confrontation with Elizabeth Bennett near the end of the film.
