I admit to being sappy at times. Pride and Prejudice is one of my favorite books. I find the Keira Knightley P&P movie hauntingly beautiful. I'm misty eyed throughout the last 20 minutes. Every time.
I want to be Donald Sutherland, I want to be Mr. Darcy.
Mercifully, the movie is on television almost constantly. You can choose either the 2 hours too long TNT version or the Oprah version.
Last night I got sucked into the O version. I hadn't caught this travesty before.
10 minutes or so to go. I'm tearing up. Darcy meets Elizabeth to ask for her hand one more time, the music swells "if your feelings have changed..."
After commercial: In dad's study.....
WT? The best part of the movie is gone. Where did it go? Is my memory that bad. Have I (O)forgotten the rest of Darcy's speech? Lizzy's reply?
Thank you Oppie. Who knew you needed the money so badly?
