Pride & Prejudice (2005) - Modified in Form But Not In Essence

I am always baffled and downright mystified by how many self-described Austen fans disparage the 2005 feature film adaptation of Pride and Prejudice. It’s understandable that many, including myself, have a deep and abiding affection for a beloved work of fiction and that this same affinity yields very strong feelings. However, what I don’t quite comprehend is the reasoning behind the disdain, which can be frequently assigned to purists and/or devotees of the seminal 1995 BBC/A&E mini-series. First and foremost an adaptation can't possibly be an exact replica. Film is an entirely different medium and it needn't be precise in order to have merit.
