Completely different from the movie, but I liked it. The movie uses the setting & a fraction of the characters & changes the plotlines a lot, but both are very enjoyable in their different ways.

Did not like the writing style of short, choppy sentences.

I absolutely love this film. Not only because Keira Knightley perfectly encaptures Elizabeth's skepticism of the rules in her society and society at large with facial expressions, tone, and the ease with which she moves from wit to wrath with timely and always appropriate perfection, but MM carries Mr. Darcy's lack of social grace with weight and brooding and empathetic shyness, and watching his self-awareness grow is exciting and gorgeous. His walk. His voice, his eyes, his yearning - so so epic and heartbreaking. It is not the lengthy deep-dive into the psychology of two very different people, but I feel like it was not necessary as the scenes between these two actors were so well done, and the intensity of their personalities were so at the ready for battle, the words they spoke were far fewer than the BBC version, so every word spoken was important, brilliant and soul-rendering and ALL SO VERY AUSTEN. This is the movie I have watched more than any other (except Jackson's LoTR trilogy LOL) and one that I return to many times throughout the year. Lastly and almost if not probably as important - the music by composer Dario Marinelli is by far one of the greatest accomplishments in movie history. In it's very own right, beside the likes of Howard Shore and James Newton Howard, this soundtrack opens this film and you are already swept away in 18th century England. It is .absolutely brilliant. The fact that I am the BIGGEST fan of Colin Firth will never sway me from saying that beautiful, invested, keen, sharp-witted, brilliant British woman, Keira Knightley IS Elizabeth Bennet and Matthew MacFadyen IS Mr. Darcy. Bravo to Joe Wright. The most sensible, yet phenomenally beautiful, romantic movie ever.… (more)

Not nearly as fun nor funny, interesting nor entertaining as I'd expected. There's too much prologue-esque narrative devoted to establishing characters and the hotel itself. The plight of the seniors who live in the hotel is sadly true, not uplifting, not to me. I was expecting antics and intrigue and they were only there in pale colours. Perhaps the movie is better, but I'd pass on this one.
