USA three days ago

USA Today rounds up a few Austen adapatations new to DVD.

Talk about ad-copy blurbs you won't see anywhere else: I once quit watching a Yankees-Indians game to sail happily through this five-hour, 10-minute BBC miniseries. Jennifer Ehle plays coolly intelligent but emotionally percolating Elizabeth Bennet, and she doesn't make a faulty move. Colin Firth, hamstrung at first by his character's rigidity, matches Ehle as the socially loftier Darcy — realizing before she does that they're soul mates.
