I watched it in the cinema. I've never read the book so I cant compare, but I thought it was a perfectly watchable but ultimately forgettable movie. It was obviously a movie to boast Kiara Knightley;s acting chops, but the bits I do remember don't involve her much at all, which is hard because she was in pretty much every single second of the movie.

What I remember is her plain sister telling her that others don't have beauty to fall back on, and most don't have the luxury of choice, and one must take anything that you can get in terms of husbands. And the other was the 3 or 4 scenes that Donald Sutherland spoke in as he was utterly superb, as usual. He owned the screen every single time he opened his mouth.

As for the rest... uh. Knightly had some arguments with some guy even more bland than she was? Thats about all I remember. Oh and the curtseying. SO MUCH CURTSEYING! AAAAGH!!!

The only way to find a bride who is not prejudiced, is to find the one who is marrying a very rich guy.

Jane Austen was a failure in life. Especially romantically.

Exactly, except that CS is a comedy, not a romance.

I watched the film with my daughter when she was about 15.

Towards the end as the handsome and heroic Mr. Darcy strides across dewy the fields to pursue his passion, I narrowed my eyes, let out a deep sigh of longing and said,

"Just look at the tailoring on his coat!" heart wings

Apparently, that wasn't the correct response. giggle

Congratulations! You don't have a scrap of romance left in you.

But you'd make a great seamstress!

I started sewing when I was 5 and have a small tailoring business. I've made a lot of theatrical costumes in my time.

The costumes in that film are pure gold.

If I remember rightly, not only is every item made according to the pattern structures of the time, but the fabrics and dyes are all authentic. There's a scene where the heroine's mother is dyeing ribbons with beetroot juice. I think they used wode and onion skins as well.

The coat in question has diagonal shoulder seams running from the neck down towards the back of the arm (unlike the modern which are horizontal running from the neck to the top of the shoulder) which create a rounded structure fitting with the natural body shape.

Most modern (high street) pattern cutting is determined by cost, waste avoidance and appearance on a coat hanger to induce spending. Clothes are deliberately and fiendishly designed to be flat. Those V seams on the back of your jeans should be two curved seams which are convex over the buttocks, or concave in the small of the back. Because they appear to be straight seams, modern manufacturers have made them straight to cut down on waste, but leaving no bum room. doh

A properly tailored garment is a sculpture, fits the 3 dimensional curves of the body and hangs like shit on a coat hanger.

I want to watch the film again now. It's like porn for tailors. laugh
