12. In the dancing scene at the Netherfield Ball, Why were Elizabeth and Mr. Darcy surrounded by others while dancing, then in the next scene, the crowds disappeared and they were dancing alone. What was the significance of this?
It was mentioned in the dvd commentary by P&P director Joe Wright that It was originally a mistake. KK and MM were practicing the steps. But they liked the way it looked, so they put it into the movie.

Also, according to JW from his interview from Empire Online:
That was simply because the crowds were getting knackered! It wasn't part of the plan. But some of the best ideas happen when something is revealed to you on set in the moment and it all just comes alive, and that was one of those moments. The extras were all getting very tired and hot and we'd been shooting it for a long time, and it occurred to me that maybe we should do a take with only Lizzie and Darcy dancing, and it worked. It's a contentious moment – some people love that moment, some people don't at all.

19. What are the differences between Widescreen and Fullscreen frames for P&P DVDs?

Check out and view
starsbutterflie s ' screen caps comparisons here.

As well as read the explaination below from starsbutterflies:

From the above quickie screen captures, it would appear that neither the WS or the FS DVDs are really showing the whole of P&P 2005's original film negative as shot on camera! But interestingly enough, there are quite a few scenes where the WS DVD has actually cut off arguably important details or non-verbal visual cues imo (things which are shown on the FS version), for example the following bits are just not seen on the Widescreen:

a) Lizzie meeting Georgiana @ Pemberley - Darcy's flexing his twitchy left hand as he smiles warmly. Both Lizzie's and Georgiana's hands.
b) Lizzie @ Pemberley Statue Gallery - Lizzie playing with her fingers as she stares up at Darcy's bust (Lizzie plays with her hands a lot throughout the movie)
c) Jane with Kitty/Lydia on Longbourn stairs - Caroline's letter at the bottom of the frame.
d) Bingley's proposal - Bingley's right hand and most of his leg as he kneels...the embroidery work on the chair (the one Mrs. Bennet was pretending to be working on
e) First Proposal in the rain - Lizzie's left hand resting against the structure.
f) Second Proposal at sunrise - Lizzie's and Darcy's hands on each other's.
g) Netherfield Ball - Lizzie's hand on Darcy's and from her waist down. The candles above her and Darcy.
h) Bennets being introduced @ Meryton Assembly - The 2nd little boy who runs by (note that before Darcy has been introduced here, Lizzie's sort of checking him out while Jane has eyes only for Bingley... Oh, and even Lydia's looking in their direction in mid-dance!)
i) Lizzie on the swing - The bottom parts of Lizzie's coat and muddy hem of her dress.

20. Is it true Emma Thompson worked on the script?
Yes, she worked on the scene where Charlotte tells Lizzy she's engaged to Mr Collins, when Lizzy receives bad news by letter in the inn at Lambton and the Region 1/U.S. Mrs. Darcy ending scene with Lizzy and Darcy at Pemberley.
