Margaux_D’s review published on Letterboxd:
I guess this movie is for people who are already fans. As a novice who knew nothing of the story or characters, I found this movie extremely confusing. The timelines are a mess and incomprehensible with no prior background, and the characters aren't developed at all, except for Jo. As a result, throughout the movie, I found myself wondering why the characters made the decisions they made, and trying to care about their lives, but failing.
This movie feels like it took the snippets fans like the most in the story, and sticking them together - I don't feel like there was a story arc or development at all.
I felt disconnected to it the entire time, and just couldn't engage, couldn't be bothered, and didn't care.
I'm very disappointed, I was hoping this would be a new Pride and Prejudice, one of my favorites.
