One of my husband and my favorite things to do on the weekend is watch movies we put on Netflix...and boy do I love Netflix! No late fees, no returning the movie to the store, just a quick jot to the mailbox...but I digress...so anyway, it's fun and it's cheap entertainment, and it's our form of zoning out! And in life, you really REALLY need to escape the "real world" from time to time, and whether it's in the pages of a great book or in a movie, I think it can be truly therapeutic!
SO...we got to see this~
And I have to say I really enjoyed it. Have any of you seen this, especially those of you who live in the U.K.? It is a British T.V. film about a girl named Amanda who loves Jane Austen's book, Pride and Prejudice. One evening, she discovers Elizabeth Bennet (the main character in the book) in her bathroom, and eventually a door that leads into Elizabeth's world. So she gets the chance to essentially live in the story of Pride and Prejudice and meet all the characters...it has some things in it that I really wished they had left out~ it would have been even better without them~ but even despite those things and a few other things that seem a bit contrived, it inspired me to read Pride and Prejudice. I always thought it would be dull, but it is such a great book so far!
And so now we are putting this is our queue at Netflix~
For though it's true we saw this before, I suddenly feel the need to see it once again! And this was a good movie as well, and as I remember, a completely clean film, which is always refreshing! I can recommend this one highly!
So what movies have you seen lately that you loved? And what is your favorite~ comedy, drama, classic, suspense...?
I hope your week is going well! :)
