Today is the 200th anniversary of the publication of Pride & Prejudice.
Fans around the world will celebrate this, one of our greatest works of literature, and its prolific author Jane Austen.
I celebrate the movie and its unforgettable Mr. Darcys. I use the plural because I find everyone has a favorite.
Mine is Matthew Macfadyen, who starred opposite Keira Knightley. I loved his interpretation — quiet, shy, judgmental, passionate.
I’ve loved everything else he has acted in as well.
Thanks, Jane, for the introduction.
