Why, oh why do film makers use american actresses to portray quintessentially English characters ?
First we had Rene Zelweger portraying Beatrix Potter as a smarmy simpering dim-wit - now this! Anne Hathaway is a beautiful woman and I am certain she has talent - but not in this role. Her deportment was all wrong and her accent deplorable. Surely there are many English actresses who would have fitted the part more credibly.
I gave up after the first 20mins and put it into the 'charity shop' bag.
Although I found it very slow and very noisy and therefore didn't watch it until the end I did lend it to my neighbour and she absolutely loved it. So perhaps not a film that would appeal to all but obviously to some.
Well it passes a reasonably pleasant couple of hours - but Jane Austen it is not! Forget the Austen connection and then it is possible to enjoy what is a light romantic film, though I think casting Anne Hathaway as an Englishwoman in the Regency period is laughable: she is altogether too modern in her way of speaking and walking. Entirely unconvincing as Jane Austen - too much Hollywood gloss!
There are some good things about the film - the photography and the music especially. As far as the acting goes, I thought Anna Maxwell Martin stood out as Cassandra.
Il film si basa sul presupposto che il romanzo "Orgoglio e pregiudizio" sia stato ispitato da una vicenda simile, ma senza lieto fine, vissuta da Jane Austen stessa. Da quello che è giunto fino a noi, sembra che questo possa essere vero nell'essenziale, che nel film è stato ampliato e romanzato. Però, secondo me, l'insieme, nonostante la presenza di Anne Hathaway, è poco interessante, piuttosto piatto. Inoltre ci sono due o tre scene sconvenienti che non si addicono per niente a una storia di questo tipo. Ottimo, come al solito, il servizio di Amazon.
