About this product
- DescriptionThis version of Jane Austen's fiercely beloved novel has the daunting task of living up not only to the classic book, but also to the excellent 1995 miniseries of the same name. Yet 2005's PRIDE & PREJUDICE is up to the task, thanks to lively pacing, a witty script, an excellent cast, and clever direction from British newcomer Joe Wright. The surprisingly still-relevant story follows the five Bennet sisters as they deal with suitors and love, as their mother desperately schemes to marry them off advantageously. Sweet-tempered beauty Jane (Rosamund Pike) develops feelings for the equally amiable and extremely wealthy Mr. Bingley (Simon Woods), but forces conspire to keep them apart while Lizzie (Keira Knightley) finds herself first appalled by, but gradually drawn to, Bingley's aloof, intelligent, and socially awkward friend, Mr. Darcy (Matthew MacFayden). The movie, at just over two hours, is forced to cut and condense a number of the book's subplots, and at times it tries to heighten the drama of certain scenes. But, for the most part, it's as faithful to the spirit of the original as time and cinematic convention allow. The tremendous supporting cast includes Brenda Blethyn as Mrs. Bennet and Donald Sutherland as her wry, withdrawn husband; Jena Malone as teenage twit Lydia; Judi Dench, effortlessly haughty and imperious, as Lady Catherine de Bourg; and Tom Hollander, who steals every scene he's in as the ludicrously pompous and awkward Mr. Collins. The movie's script, adapted by Deborah Moggach, manages to be proto-feminist without becoming anachronistic and, like the novel, it is incisive about the class politics and gender inequalities of the day.

Easy to watch, good movie.
Good movie, not as close to the book as the colin firth series or the 80's series but a good film none the less and a quick start into Austen's world. :)

Surely you must know this wonderful film. All I can say is Keira is absolutely superb. Jane Austen knew how to write a good story.

You have to watch this film
One of the most romantic films of all time and my all time favourite of Austen's work. I have to be honest I much prefer this to the version with Firth. This film features some beautiful shots and fantastic acting. Knightley is brilliant as Elizabeth Bennett, Macfadyen's Darcy is just as I imagined him to be. This is definitely a must see.

Great with a bottle of wine 90 mins
politically and in terms of the book incorrect with a classic piano piece by a modern Italian composer and a great turn by Tom Hollander of the tv series 'Rev' as Collins

I love this frickin film :D the plot of the story is so simple to get for a film set back in the 1800's. I really enjoyed the music to the film too, the quality of the pictures and sound is really impressive on the DVD. I would recommend buying this film.
