P&P 05: Deleted Scenes Photos

Ever wonder if the P&P film has any deleted scenes? The P&P 05 DVD's special features (in both the U.S. and UK/International versions) doesn't seem to have deleted scenes and outtakes that fans were hoping would've been included.

Director Joe Wright mentioned in this script factory interview (with P&P screenwriter Deborah Moggach) that there really wasn't any deleted scenes (other than longer edits) like when someone asked him about the length of the film.

AM: "I wish the film had been longer! It’s a great shame you had to chop so much. What dictates the length of a film? Do you look at the prospective audience and wonder how long you can keep them in their seats, or are you told that it has to be a certain length?"

His response was:

JW: "There was a longer edit, the first edit was forty five minutes longer. But it was a bit boring. The fact that you want more is a good thing. But I like that we end on the close up because it just whips it away. The longer version was just more indulgent in the shots of ceilings of houses. I felt that I was letting the audience drift. One of the things when you do an adaptation is that you want to stick to the narrative, and beats of the story, but I was also keen to be faithful to the spirit of the book. I wanted to create the same feeling in the audience as you get reading the novel. That’s why you get so many close ups because Austen looks very carefully at people, and using this technique I found a cinematic equivalent to her prose. But it’s a youthful book, written by a twenty one year old girl when she wrote the first draft. So it’s got great energy, and I wanted that speed and energy running through it. I wanted that youthful telling of it. That’s not because I wanted a youthful audience, but because it was written by somebody young."
