After several failed attempts at finding an accurate on-screen portrayal of Austen's classic literary romance, I was excited to find one I actually enjoyed.
The casting here was fabulous, and the characterization didn't miss a beat. Aside from the irreplaceable chemistry between lead roles Jennifer Ehle and Colin Firth, the mannorisms of supporting characters such as Mr. and Mrs. Bennett were spot on and very true to the actual novel. Viewers will be pleased with the superior settings, script, and acting in this mini-series. There was very little dramatization, so the simplistic romance Austen was attempting to create between two unlikely people really shines here. Overall, I think this adaptation of Austen's book did most justice to the characters and time period being depicted. A true must-see.
