Geelong Advertiser - TV Guide - - MOVIES -

There is some­thing to be said for the be­guil­ing Gwyneth Pal­trow’s ( pic­tured) im­mer­sion into meaty roles. Won­der­fully cos­tumed, pho­tographed, scored and acted, this adap­ta­tion of Jane Austen’s novel is ro­man­tic com­edy in full bloom. Pal­trow is both ra­di­ant and as­sured as the ti­tle’s im­pu­dent Cupid char­ac­ter and an in­vig­o­rat­ing sup­port cast in­clud­ing Jeremy Northam, Toni Col­lette and Ewan McGre­gor ap­pear to be hav­ing a ball. For a case of art im­i­tat­ing Gwyneth’s real- life ro­man­tic es­capades, con­sider this just as much fun.
