My husband took me to see Rush, the movie about the rivalry between Nikki Lauda and James Hunt. We recently watched Senna, about Ayrton Senna. After this I think my husband should watch some Jane Austen movies but I might be expecting too much.
Go for the 1995 BBC Pride and Prejudice miniseries, with Colin Firth and Jennifer Ehle. Longer than any of the film adaptations.
Oh, I love that version! And, also the BBC version of the 1980's! (The 1980's one has a great Mr. Darcy
) But, I imagine if I got my husband to watch it, he wouldn't last very long. He started watching Persuasion with me ( the 1990's film version) and lasted about 10 minutes before falling asleep and snoring. And, who wants to watch a Jane Austen movie listening to someone else snore?
Not the best. And, he missed the best part of the movie. The part where Captain Wentworth wrote his letter that starts "I can listen no longer in silence. I must speak to you by such means as are within my reach. You pierce my soul...." *sigh*
