For a true Austenophile, however, the gold standard is the 1995 BBC miniseries featuring Colin Firth and Jennifer Ehle in the leading roles.

Their chemistry together was positively combustible; Firth remains a superstar sex symbol to a certain fan base to this day (and will, I suspect, remain so even into his advanced years) thanks to his smoldering turn as Darcy. Ehle, too, created an indelible character; her Elizabeth is taut, focused and beautifully mannered when it comes to her own place in the world.

From Dunro Munro's review of the new Pride and Prejudice movie in the Fresno Bee.

There's a tiny little lead about Alpha Male at Box Office Prophets - it's said that the film will be given a limited release sometime in 2006.
