Pride and Prejudice was a movie I was dreading to watch. After a rather boring experience with the book, which was extremely slow and hard to read, I had no interest in learning the plot of one of the “greatest stories of all time.” Regardless of my uninterested manner, I ended up watching the movie on a short flight. The experience of watching the movie was extremely different than reading the book. I was addicted from the first scene and loved it till the very end. The plots of the book and the movie have been known to remain almost the same, except for the few cinematic touches to make the movie smoother and more interesting to watch. I loved how the movie was able to depict how Elizabeth and Darcy eventually moved on from their terrible first impressions and stopped judging each other based on that alone. If you somehow got past the first few pages of the book, you’ll definitely enjoy watching the movie version of Pride and Prejudice.
