I'm guessing most Jane Austen purists would choose the 6-part BBC Pride and Prejudice as their preferred depiction of Elizabeth Bennet and Mr. Darcy. I, however, was quite taken by the 2005 version starring Keira Knightly and Matthew Macfadyen.
While the BBC actors may have captured their characters flawlessly (especially Colin Firth as Darcy), what captivated me in the more recent version was the cinematography and music. I distinctly recall being spellbound and breathless seeing Mr. Darcy walking over the dewy field to confess his admiration for Elizabeth:
“In vain I have struggled. It will not do. My feelings will not be repressed. You must allow me to tell you how ardently I admire and love you." Mr. DarcyWhat movies take your breath away?
