Happy Birthday Brenda Blethyn!

Today, February 20th, is the 71st birthday of two-time Academy Award Award NomineeBrenda Blethyn, best known to us P&P fans as Mrs. Bennet, the five Bennet girlsmother in the 2005 Pride & Prejudice film.

After twenty years of hard work on stage and both television and films, there are not many other actresses who deserved the success, recognition and stardom which Brenda Blethyn has now achieved. Currently seen on ITV's Vera series, which is now on its sixth season.

Born in (February 20th) 1946 in Ramsgate in Kent, England, she started her career at British Rail in the 1960s. Saving money during her time there, she took a risk and enrolled herself at the at The Guildford School of Acting in Guildford, Surrey, England and then left her British Rail years behind.

Pride and Prejudice and Zombies Film Review

Okay, I'm beyond late in posting my film review of Screen Gems' Pride and Prejudice and Zombiesfilm starring  & , which was released one year ago this month  (February 5th, 2016). I was going to watch this movie when it was released, but I got busy and didn't get a chance to see it when it was still showing in theaters. So, I missed it. I thought I'll just wait to see this when it's released either on premium cable or Netflix. Of course, it took several months before it finally premiered on Starz. So, yeah, I just saw this movie recently and finally got to write down here what I thought about this movie. Better late than never, right?

Valentine's Day Love Songs - Pride & Prejudice Playlist

greeting-card-elizabeth-bennet-mr-darcy It’s Valentine’s Day and on such an occasion it’s only appropriate to recognize arguably the greatest love story ever told. It is a truth universally acknowledged that Pride and Prejudice is a very romantic novel. Elizabeth Bennet and Fitzwilliam Darcy are literature’s greatest lovers and remain the standard by which all couples in a love story are compared.
When Jane Austen created the spirited Elizabeth and the brooding Mr. Darcy she probably had no idea that she was setting in motion two hundred years of fascination. Very few pieces of writing have entered our cultural consciousness and have remained as fresh and captivating as this tale.

Happy Valentine's Day!

♥ Happy Valentines Day!!!! ♥
