No. I didn't think the LDS version would get any votes. But I do love it for all its joys.
I love '05 for absolutele everything (scenery, music, adapting to reach a wider audience) except Keira Knightley. And as she plays a significant role in the movie, it unfortunately dragged the overall opinion down.
I'm glad I was enlightened away from the '80 version. But you can't help love that they kept the line in "Save Your Breath to Cool Your Porridge" as it originally was in the book (Lizzie "to" Mr. Darcy instead of '95 version having Lydia say it to Kitty).
The '40 version only good because of Greer. The ending? Yes, SaraLyn--I hate it, too!
I'm happy with the winner. '95 is a wonderful book-to-film adaptation. While I still think the characters are portrayed a bit excessive in their faults (compare to how even the unlikeable characters in '05 still have understandably likeable qualities), they are still quite classic. I've seen this adaptation reach males as well as females. 5 hours really isn't that long. And how can I not vote for the movie that our apartment watched every semester during finals week?
