I recently reread the “Making Of” book for the 1995 adaptation of Pride and Prejudice, and will soon review it. The book gives you so much appreciation for the love, research and effort that went into that particular production (something the 2005 version could have learnt from!).
However, I don’t love everything about this version, and one of my issues is with Jennifer Ehle’s smug and almost matronly Elizabeth Bennet. I found this GIF from the show, and her rude expression pretty much sums up my problem with her acting! Miss Elizabeth was young and lively, and this is not what I take away from Ehle’s interpretation!
