While sitting in the woods "quite close to" Mr Darcy's house with her Aunt and Uncle, Lizzie is wearing a dark brown dress with a lighter colored coat. But when they go to see the house, Lizzie's dress has changed to a cream striped dress with the same coat as before. In the book the party of 3 decide to visit Pemberley the following day. In this film the changing of the dress and the fact that they clearly arrive at Pemberly in the early morning are supposed to indicate albeit rather subtly that it is the following day without having written it into the script.

Having attended a regional charity premiere last night I can safely say that the actors chosen have more than succeeded in bringing their characters to life. This adaptation hit the perfect note every time in terms of humour, romance and warmth. Keira Knightley plays a wonderfully spirited Lizzie and MacFayden really hits the spot as a dour yet shy Darcy. The whole cast throw themselves into their roles with gusto and overall the film left this viewer charmed and delighted. Its obviously going to have a tough time proving itself to those who loved the BBC adaptation as that seems to have become for so many THE adaptation of the novel, but give this one a chance, those that don't will be missing out. Sorry to keep this brief but I don't want to be accused of giving anything away!
