My mother has informed me that I had a fact wrong on the previous post about P&P. Mr. Bennet would have been able to be a gentleman farmer. So scratch that from the objections list. She also feels that the casting in the short movie was better, while the script of the long movie was better.
A short bit on the Mr. Collins, to give some detail: I personally did not feel repulsed enough by the Mr. Collins in the shorter P&P. He actually reminded me of the father of a friend of mine. He was too friendly and I almost felt bad for him when Kiera Knightly said no. That's one of the reasons I didn't like him.
anyways, that was me ranting, I don't claim to have any wisdom what-so-ever on film making, or Jane Austen. However, considering that fact that I have read all her novels at least twice and seen several movie adaptations and read several things she wrote that you have probably never heard of and read lots of fan fic, which is never as good as the real thing, and wrote a ten page paper on the woman and her writings, I can promise you I am a DEVOTED fan of Jane.
incredibly funny post on P&P in Twitter world...
also hilarious, a fake FB page for Obama...
