Our first film of the day was Pride and Prejudice, our 9th overall. While I haven't read Jane Austen's novel, it's pretty obvious the whole way thorough how things are going to turn out. That said, it's wonderfully executed and entertaining even if it does run a little long. On hand for Q&A were the director, Brenda Bleythn and Matthew MacFadyen. Ms. Blethyn had the best response for a question regarding how she approached her character. She said she doesn't patronize her charater but rather puts herself in her character's place and plays it from there. A common response, but somehow it made more sense to me this time around. Maybe it was the accent.
