Forgive Us Jane Austen

Trailers for the latest Pride and Prejudice are now showing.

First mistake. Producing the film too soon after the near-perfect BBC production.

Second mistake. Casting the attractive but not-period-piece material Keira Knightly as one of literatures most important and complex heroines.

Third mistake. Howie Day Collide.

Fourth Mistake. Ending the trailers with a tight shot of Elizabeth Bennett and Mr. Darcy locking lips.

Why don't they just spit on her grave?

Here, here! WAY too soon after the superior A&E productions.

P.S. Are they really using "Collide" to promote the film? I love the song and the story, but I also love chocolate and alredo...
