Best Scene Ever

Yay for Oxygen. Last week they played the newest version of Jane Austen's Pride and Prejudice. It is one of my favorite books and one of my all-time favorite movies. I love the 6-hour long BBC version because the casting is spot on. Colin Firth is the best Darcy ever. So hot.

So anyway, when I first saw Darcy in the 2005 version with Keira Knightley, I was super bummed with the choice of Matthew Macfadyen. He seemed kinda short and well, just not Colin Firth.

Then there was this scene.

They are standing under this gorgeous stone structure in the middle of England somewhere and it is absolutely pouring down the rain. Both actors are never in the shot at the same time. It is splendid.

It's not Colin Firth as Darcy half naked and soaking wet after a swim in that pond in front of his estate but it is splendid.

I had forgotten about it until it was on TV. I watched it again when they showed it right after it was finished playing the first time...
