Pride and Prejudice

posted by Jason Kottke   Feb 20, 2006

As far as I’m concerned, Will Ferrell et al., Jon Stewart, or the Farrelly brothers have nothing on Jane Austen when it comes to humor (or would that be humour?). And this latest film adaptation of Pride & Prejudice sticks closely to the book and strikes just the right tone. The book, of course, has lots more goodies in it, but as an abridged version the film couldn’t be better. Also, since it was published back in 1813, P&P is in the public domain and can be read online for free.
