My Next Swooner?

Yesterday I rented, and watched, Pride and Prejudice. Not the big screen version (I cannot stand Keira Knightley), the mini-series that was on A&E several years ago.

And people, I loved it.

Yes, I sat and watched the entire thing last night and just enjoyed the hell out of it. It was a beautiful movie, and I'm a sucker for a romantic plot.

To be honest, I haven't read the book, but I do have an old hardcover edition that I inherited when my father died. As was his custom, he made a notation at the end of the book as to when he read it (1987) and his overall opinion. He found it "Incredibly dull and boring."

At one time I must have found that book, in my younger days, hence all the red crayon scribbles and ripped pages.

Last weekend I watched the Bridget Jones movies (again) and wanted to see Colin Firth in something else anyway, and all I have to say is "Hel-lo!"

The UK sure can turn out some cuties, huh? Could he be my next Swooner Dreamboat?

This is actually one of those high school required readings that I actually read and enjoyed. I liked the orginal movie as well.....did you see it and if so, which one do you prefer: the old or the new?

I've only seen Sense and Sensibility (with Emma Thompson) and I loved it. That's the only movie of a Jane Austen book I've seen, until now.
