Repression Era Movies

I saw Pride & Prejudice (2005) again, and loved it even more the second time. It was great having the subtitles on for the first 20 minutes of the movies, and being able to truly understand the rapid-fire dialogue that occurs. I can understand fully how someone can wear a shirt that declares: "I love Mr. Darcy." (My husband is at the shirt shop now, getting me a shirt that has our last name on it).

You have to love the whole theme of repressed love running that courses throughout the movie because when that love is finally declared, it is a beautiful thing. Pride & Prejudice does truly make one "incandescently happy."

The problem with repressed love stories like Pride & Prejudice is that all the men are just "Humorless Poppycocks". It's no wonder they are repressed they need some levity in their life.
