My addiction for movies has just gone wilder. From visiting the cinema in a quite often manner, now, I could say I am a frequent customer. There isnâ€™t much movies I have yet to see. I saw the trailer for this movie while I was watching some other movie. I lost track of what movie that was.
This trailer was a rather ermmm.. how should I put it in words. *ah, I give up* From the trailer, I could tell this is the type of movies I can never eat popcorn while watching it. Yeah, I will lose my concentration. Loads of listening and paying attention to words is needed. What to doâ€¦ my England not good.
To be honest with, what attracts me to watch this movie? Kiera Knightlyâ€¦ ermmm she is one of the reason obviously but itâ€™s Mr. Darcyâ€™s (I have no idea who he is, I can only remember his characterâ€™s name) eyes that unconsciously bring me to the cinema. Wowâ€¦ I must say he really have beautiful eyes. He seriously have those mesmerizing eyes that I wish to sit and look at them for the rest of my life.
Okay, this movie is a purely romance story type. Yes, with lots of jokes, that will tickle you here and there. I must say, itâ€™s quite some good jokes and for those who really have multitasking problem, please do stop chewing on the box of popcorn for once.
Pride and Prejudice tells a romance story that happens on the early 18th century. The story resolves around Mr. Bennetâ€™s family. Yes, a big family.Mr. Bennet has five daughters, the sad part, the only property, their house will be inherited by a far away cousin when Mr. Bennet pass away seems to worry the family. And to make a good living out of marrying someone who is able to give the family a stable life, the only concern to Mrs. Bennet is to ensure her daughters married a well to do husband and they shall never have to worry about being homeless.
Opportunity comes when a fellow rich man (Mr. Bingley) is rumored to have bought up the big mansion nearby and a big grand ball shall be held. Yes, Mr. Bingley who earns Â£5,000 pounds a year seems to capture the attention of everyone. Mr. Bingley, his arrogant sister and his best friend Mr. Darcy soon came to the party. Jane, the elder daughter of Mr. Bennet caught the attention of Mr. Bingley. Elizabeth (Keira Knightly) fell right in love with Mr. Darcy. However, Mr. Darcyâ€™s unfriendly and rather arrogant behaviour quickly angers Elizabeth.
Mr. Bennetâ€™s cousin soon came into the scene when he shift in to the house. Yes, he has an eye onMr. Bennetâ€™s elder daughter, Jane. Mrs. Bennet then told Mr. Bennetâ€™s cousin that Jane was engaged and suggested for him to go after Elizabeth. When Elizabeth refuses Mr. Bennetâ€™s cousinâ€™s proposal, Mrs. Bennet was very furious but matters soon settle when Elizabethâ€™s best friend decided to marry Mr. Bennetâ€™s cousin.
Matters turn worst when Elizabeth starts to believe stories being made up by this fellow soldier, Mr. Wickham. Just when Jane starts to feel for Mr. Bingley, she is quickly sadden when she heard the news that Mr. Bingley has left the town (wooohoooâ€¦ I can assure you there is a pretty good reason. *Go go… see it*).
Jane soon left town to look for her love, Mr. Bingley while Elizabeth left home and gave her best friendâ€™s new home a visit. Wallaâ€¦ guess what, she bump into Mr. Darcy while on the visit. What elseâ€¦ love starts to bloom and not long after that, Mr. Darcy, the man which Elizabeth thought of to be an arrogant, selfish and unfriendly soon proposes to her. He was quickly rejected by Elizabeth when she heard rumours. *sob sobâ€¦ itâ€™s really sad. I nearly cried.*
Okayâ€¦ the sorta boring part start to emerge the scenes when Elizabeth finally found out that she has misunderstood and misjudge Mr. Darcy. Yes, she starts to regret her decisions but heyâ€¦ what can I say except â€œYou miss out on a good guyâ€. If itâ€™s me, I can already see his sincerity in his eyes. Eyes are the window to the soul. Ahâ€¦ like I always sayâ€¦ eyes, eyes, eyes. Look at them in the eyes.
Twist and turn, when many thing happens and everything that soon happen towards the end proves to Elizabeth that she has really misjudge Mr. Darcy. But well, itâ€™s a love story so yes, needless to say but to expect a happy ending. A cheesy yet purely romantic ending. I dunno about everyone else, but at times cheesy stuff does work for me.
Like I say, this movie is a typical romance story. A fairytale like love story. Some love story that we have seen over and over again in my early years. But as I grew up, people would always want to do a something different type of movie with different endings. This movie manage to bring back the true meaning of love stories. Old fashion love story movies with great cast.
I must say the script were beautifully written. However, itâ€™s sad that many people that I talked to about this movie didnâ€™t really understand the meanings beneath the words. So yes, my suggestion, lose the popcorn if you are watching this show as the munching sound will dilute the words.
Verdict, beautiful scenery, beautiful actress, beautiful love story. What can be more beautiful than that?
