1940 vs 1995 vs 2005

There's a comparison of the three major Pride and Prejudice adaptations at the Brisbane Courier-Mail, with some commentary from Helen Hampstead, author of a new sequel.

And, most importantly, is it too soon to bother revisiting one of the most endearing screen adaptations yet filmed – the BBC's elegant Pride and Prejudice starring an almost faultless Jennifer Ehle, who embodied Lizzy's "pert opinions and fine eyes" with glorious control, and an equally triumphant Colin Firth, who was Mr Darcy?

Reminder: The River King is screening at Cinefest Sudbury tonight. Check a few posts down for details.
