Movies in Frames, the miniseries

Well Ranielle of The Film Brat remains the queening champ of Movies in Frames! And this time, she took it upon herself to do something rather complicated, a miniseries. And not just any miniseries, one of the best.


Parts 1, 2 & 3


Parts 4, 5 & 6

A&E's 6 hour long Pride and Prejudice miniseries, starring Colin Firth and Jennifer Ehle is quite possibly one of the best Brit miniseries in existence, and despite my ever expanding love for Keira Knightley's version, this one will always be my favorite adaptation. Due to its lengthy running time, Ranielle thought it best to do one movies and frames per episode, only fair. If you haven't managed to see this yet, you're severely missing out on muddied skirts, hand scripted letters, and a lake soaked tunics. Just watch.

I prefer the film version by far, but this will always have a special place in my heart. Colin Firth is adorable times a million, and although Jennifer Ehle isn't my idea of Lizzy, she does a good job. Plus, given the 6 hour running time, pretty much every sentence from the book is lovingly represented. The film has more of the feel and the look and the spirit of the book, but this too is a faithful, albeit less risk taking, adaptation.
