Pride and Prejudice
Joe Wright, 2005 - 127m
Jane Austen's famous novel about class, wealth, and romance in late 18th century England, like its heroine Elizabeth Bennett (Keira Knightley), was ahead of its time. This lush film adaptation of Austen's work, rife with exciting cinematography and strong performances, gives Bennett's character ample space to show just how far ahead she really was. "It is a truth universally acknowledged, that a single man in possession of a good fortune must be in want of a wife," begins Austen's novel, and it proceeds to track one such single man as he looks for one. Come for the gossip, stay for the love.

Steven Spielberg, 2005 - 164m
When the most famous scene in a new movie from the director of the adorable E.T. is a montage juxtaposing explicit sex and hardcore terrorism, you have no choice but to watch. Spielberg's political thriller, written by Eric Roth (Forrest Gump) and Tony Kushner (Angels in America), recounts the aftermath of the 1972 Munich Olympics massacre, in which the PLO terror squad Black September took hostage and eventually murdered 11 Israeli athletes.

を見てきたのだけれど,pride and prejudiceって,小説バージョンで読む限りはまあ普通なんだけど,映画化するとただのギャグになるんだねぇ,と感心。最初から最後まで,ほとんど笑いが途絶えない上映でした。
