The acting was awkward, the chemistry lacking... I was also surprised at the acting of Hayley Atwell that was lacking something at some parts of this movie because she's usually a very good actress. All in all, this movie was disappointing and slightly boring. I hope the 1999 version will be more satisfying to watch.

I have to confess that I have little experience with Jane Austen, or with period pieces. I only came to this film as it stars Billie Piper of Dr. Who fame.

Of course, the costumes of the period show off Piper's assets, as well as everyone else.

One thing I find fascinating is the constant focus on marriage. It seems that love hardly enters the picture. It is a competition to see what kind of a match (titles and/or money) can be made.

I was beginning to despair that Edmund (Blake Ritson) would ever choose the right woman to marry, but he got his head right in the end.
