    A better director, with a cast on par. This has all the chance to be as good, if not better imo.

    I love the 1994 adaptation, but this actually kind of reminds me of the 2005 Pride and Prejudice situation, though not a 1 for 1. Plenty adore the 1995 BBC adaptation, said it couldn't be beat. But as a film and adaptation of the material, I feel like the 2005 version easily outdoes the BBC adaptation. Beyond it just being a far more cinematic telling of the story, with top notch direction, cinematography, music, editing, etc. The general tone of the story matches the youthful nature, by updating it with some more modern sensibilities in that regard. The 90s classics adaptations are for the most part, very good imo. But they feel adapted with an older energy, even by 90s standards, even Little Women, which does trend more youthful then most of the others imo (like Lee's Sense and Sensibility). If you give me something more akin to Lady Bird then a BBC adaptation, I think it has a real chance of being the adaptation.

    I'm sure Watson will ruin what would otherwise be a fine trailer

    I like the 1994 version starring Winona Ryder a lot, so this will have an uphill battle for me.

    Will be tough for me to see anyone but Claire Danes as Beth.

    Greta behind the camera? Great.
    Emma Watson? Fine.
    Timothy Chamelon? Sure.

    But you better believe I'm here for Laura Dern, *****.

    The lack of Saoirse Ronan in your post is disturbing.

    I didn't even bother trying to spell the boy's name right, you really think I'm going to try to contend with all those Irish vowels?
