"I cast Rosamund because I knew she wasn’t going to play Jane as a nice, simple person. Jane has a real interior world, she has her heart broken.”
(Joe Wright, Director)
And this is why I (heresy, I know) actually prefer the 2005 film version over the 1995 mini-series.
Yes, it was watered down for time constraints and maybe wasn’t as faithful to the Austen’s book as was the mini-series.
But the characters just felt like they had so much more depth and feeling.
P&P!1995 was the book’s irony and romance. P&P!2005 was the passion and the angst.
