miles teller: YOU TOLD ME NOT TO THINK!
old man in row next to me, laughing excitedly: HE DID SAY THAT!!!
proof that a well-structured plot which hits all the beats it needs to at exactly the right moments will satisfy your audience so much more than a needlessly convoluted one full of twists and inconsistencies. I don't even like action movies much and my eyes filled with tears on multiple occasions! God damn you, tom cruise!
the writers on this series: lets make it religiously close to the original source material. so they literally feel like they're reading the book as they watch it. apart from one thing. colin firth is going to jump into a lake and emerge, dripping wet, with his undershirt clinging to him, and walk back to pemberley. that's the only thing that needs to be added. it has little to no plot relevance but it'll be hot as fuck
