Jane Austen's Pride and Prejudice is a timeless story. It seems there is no end to adaptations set in both modern day and Austen's time.
I've been hearing about this great modern adaptation called the Lizzie Bennet Diaries for a while now. Finally, I get around to actually watching the episodes and they are just as wonderful as everyone is saying. The cool thing is that I don't have to wait to watch the next episode---it's all there!!!
The series is done as a woman's video log or vlog as she relates this new version of Pride and Prejudice. Check out the first episode.
Amanda, a modern day Jane Austen fan, finds herself magically transported into the story of Pride and Prejudice as Elizabeth Bennet. She keeps trying to keep the story on track despite several mistakes.
One of the most lushly filmed treatments of Austen's work. There is more melodrama and less witty repartee than some of us fans would like to see, but it is charged with romantic feeling. It was also good enough to get Keira Knightley an Oscar nomination for Best Actress.
