Pemberley state of mind: Jane Austen´s House

“In the morning, Jane would get up early and she´d go and practise the piano. Then probably she´d be writing after breakfast. Writing secretly at her tiny little table in the dining room. They had a door that used to creak, so she could hear if anybody came in. She didn´t want…

We started watching the Colin Firth Pride and Prejudice mini-series tonight! Only one episode in & he’s already had a man-servant pour water over his head as he sat in a bath & then, I swear to you, he tossed his hair back like Ariel in The Little Mermaid & it was glorious!

The would-be lip lock after so much bickering? Knightley says the idea was hatched not by “Pride and prejudice” director Joe Wright but well before filming began, when she and Macfadyen met in an audition room.
“I did the scene with all of the guys who were up for Darcy, because I was cast before we found Mr. Darcy. It wasn’t in the script at all. But as we were doing the scene, it just so happened that it felt right to do, right at the end. So we went through the scene, and we did it really, really quickly. We were literally in each other’s faces. And then we both went in for a kiss, and went out. There was complete silence in the room. And he was cast straight after that.”

“This is a film about love. It was made by a group of people who believed passionately in the story they were telling. Pride and prejudice is a true story and that´s why, like a fairytale, it´s a story worth telling again and again through the generations. On behalf of all our cast and crew I hope you enjoy watching our film as much as we enjoyed making it.”

(Joe Wright, Director)

Elizabeth was delighted. She had never seen a place for which nature had done more, or where natural beauty had been so little counteracted by an awkward taste. They were all of them warm in their admiration; and at that moment she felt that to be mistress of Pemberley might be something! […] The rooms were lofty and handsome, and their furniture suitable to the fortune of their proprietor; but Elizabeth saw, with admiration of his taste, that it was neither gaudy nor uselessly fine; with less of splendor, and more real elegance, than the furniture of Rosings.
-Pride and Prejudice, Chapter 43.
