Revisiting garments

Remember how Jennifer Ehle told her fans in the 2005 interview that her favorite P&P dress was the red one?
Well, as mentioned by the Jane Austen Today Follow Friday post, there is now a website supplying comprehensive informations about gowns in Jane Austen movie adaptations...The Jane Austen (and friends) movie gowns.
Check out the Lizzie section of the website. Will you be able to recognize the "very soft, over-washed, faded cream print one" that Ms Ehle used to call "Lizzie's Levi's" ?
Speaking of which, a Restored Pride & Prejudice DVD Set will be available in 2 days (27 april, 2010) for Zone 1 viewers.
Bonus features mentioned in the site:

- Completely Digitally Remastered for the Ultimate in Picture and Sound Quality
- Anamorphic Widescreen Presentation
- Featurettes "Lasting Impressions", "An Impromptu Walkabout with Adrian Lukis and Lucy Briers", "Turning Point"
- Uncovering the Technical Restoration Process
- The Making-of
- English subtitles

Also at Let's hope that a Zone 2 restored DVD will follow soon!

Back to movies

The Greatest is now released in theaters in the United States.

According to the 2 New York Times and LA Times reviews of the film, we won't see much of Jennifer Ehle though:

Math professor Allen's recent affair with a lovely colleague (Jennifer Ehle) provides a potential key to the marital problem between Allen and Grace that clearly predated their son's death. But, like much else here, it goes underexplored. (LA Times)

The film squanders valuable time on several undeveloped subplots. One involves Allen's recent affair with a colleague (Jennifer Ehle), who tries to offer solace. (NY Times)

Colin Firth talks about his role as King George VI in The King's speech :

I finally fall on this very funny article, Postsecret and embarassing Pride and Prejudice confessions, in which the author archly asks : what hidden secrets do we have about Pride and Prejudice? I let you look at the post and meditate on that...
