For those in love with Austen, Bronte, and Bridgerton---see this movie! It is sweet and funny, the characters very engaging and genuine. Will see again!
So fun! Just like all the clean/sweet romance novels I like to read. The casting was weird/non traditional for a show like this. I’m all for colorblind/all body shapes casting, it just seemed like it was a little bit of a forced choice for this show. After a little bit, I didn’t care though. They all won me over and i just enjoyed a fun love story. Not for the snobbish and regency era purist types, but super enjoyable and I didn’t have to cover my daughter’s ears or eyes for any scenes. We laughed and sighed together. I love shows/stories like this. Good job!
Mr Malcolm’s List plays like Jane Austen fan-fiction, which isn’t the worst subgenre in the world, even if nobody could ever confuse the plot with that of Lady Susan, let alone Pride and Prejudice.
It’s a pleasant enough diversion, that will likely be best remembered for colorblind casting done right.
What is here –a good if not “all star” cast, colorful characters, the settings and the story — has charm enough to get by even if no one will ever confuse Mr. Malcolm’s List for “Sense Sensibility.”
