WHAT ARE PEOPLE SAYING?

Stella Rumble Profile picture for Stella Rumble

While it pains me to say this about any film graced with Bill Nighy, I personally felt this movie was a bit too much of a caricature to really connect with. A lot of the colors and sets were aesthetically appealing, but for me (and perhaps I am too much of an Austen fan), it did not feel genuine to the novel. I think that taking artistic liberties in adaptations can be really wonderful and interesting, but in this case, it felt just a little too much of a cartoon without a payoff.
