Countdown to Matrimony: Wedding Movie #29

Posted on: January 14, 2011

Pride & Prejudice: I had to watch the condensed Keira Knightley version, the one DM condemns and won’t deign watch. This story is all about marriage, getting the children off to their own lives and seeing beyond first impressions. In this version of P&P, I’m particularly touched by Donald Sutherland who plays the role with less aloofness than his predecessors. The last scene, where his eyes fill over Lizzie’s Darcy gushing, makes me cry every time. A father who loves his daughter and cares what happens to her–a noble concept. Another noble concept: that your life could turn out better than you thought possible. 🙂
