I've only read A Room With A View & loved it. It's funny how sexy E.M. Forster can make kissing seem. The film has been on my to see list for a long time now. I read Atonement in one night for my book club. I just couldn't stop once I really got into it. I don't mind Keira, & will be interested to see how the story works on film. That shot of her in that green gown is GORGEOUS!

I also really liked Atonement, but didn't know that James McAvoy was cast as Robbie! Can't wait until it comes out in the States. Good FF pick -- such a classic.

I'm sorry to say I disagree with you on the P&P rants but hey, what's life without a little disagreement. :) Although I do have to agree with you about the pout thing, it's getting a bit old.

Anyway, my first thought which has nothing to do with the books or movies but it occurred to me that KK played Elizabeth in P&P and in the recent flick, Becoming Jane, James McAvoy played her hypothetical love interest who inspired Mr. Darcy. I just thought that was a funny coincidence.

Thanks for the reading ideas. I never know what books to pick when looking for something new. There are so many choices it's hard to decide.

Becoming Jane, did you see it? What do you think? Would you prefer Anne Hathaway to KK?

Jennifer, I LOVE different opinions!!

I did see Becoming Jane and really enjoyed it (especially because of James who is the only other man other than my husband to make me go weak at my knees). Anne Hathaway was good in the role, but I'm not a huge fan of her as an actress. In my opinion, Romola Garai (who played Briony in Atonement) would have made a much better Cecilia than KK, as I think she's a fantastic actress with a lot of range. KK on the other hand (IMHO) has very limited depth to her acting. I know she was quite young, but you only need to watch Bend It Like Beckham to see it.

I'm going to do a new post about the film - I'm loving being back at blogging!!
