Pride and Prejudice

Karen has arranged a girlie night out at the cinema, but the plans crumble a little when we're delayed getting to Parrs Wood and discover that Pride and Prejudice is sold out even though we're there 20 mins before showtime.

After much discussion of other films (nothing else much worth seeing on) the wonders of WAP tell me there's an 8.45pm showing at AMC Great Northern.

So we dash into town and eventually find our way to the car park despite all the road closures due to building works (great signage: sign 1 "For Great Northern Car Park follow Diversion"; sign 2, 20 yards beyond "Diversion Ends").

Unfortunately we miss the opening, but hopefully not too much.

I was worried that it would suffer in comparison against the 1995 TV series, but it holds its own well. Significantly different in many ways, a very much more realistic, earthy feel to it all.

Not bad at all.
