Movie synopsis

This 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 Bennet and Donald Sutherland as her wry, withdrawn husband; Jena Malone as teenage twit Lydia; Judi Dench, effortlessly haughty and imperious, as Lady Catherine de Bourg; and Tom Hollander, who steals every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.

Rolling Stone - Peter Travers (11/17/2005)

"Keira Knightley, in a witty, vibrant, altogether superb performance, plays Lizzie's sparky, questing nature as a matter of the deepest personal sacrifice....The acting in PRIDE & PREJUDICE tingles with nuance and presence." -- Grade: A
Entertainment Weekly - Owen Gleiberman (11/18/2005)

Pride & Prejudice

Created: 04/06/06
Excellent adaptation of the Jane Austen novel--a bit different from the A&E version but the story still shines through. Keira Knightly is probably closer to Lizzie's true age & does a great job with the complexities of her character. Matthew Macfadyen is not the most handsome Darcy but has wonderful sex appeal & fabulous eyes! I did take offense to the modernization of the dialog at times but the overall production is striking.

Mrs. Bennet raises her five daughters - Jane, Elizabeth, Mary, Kitty and Lydia with the purpose of getting married with a rich husband that can support the family. They find out that their house in Hartfordshire will be inherited by a distant cousin if Mr. Bennet dies. When the wealthy bachelor Mr. Bingley and his best friend Mr. Darcy arrive in town to spend the summer in a mansion nearby their property, the shy and beautiful Jane falls in love for Mr. Bingley, and Lizzie finds Mr. Darcy a snobbish and proud man, and she swears to loathe him forever. This is the beginning of their wonderful love story.

One of My Favorites!

Created: 30/03/07
I absolutely adore this movie! True, it does deviate a bit from the original, and it does leave out a good deal, HOWEVER, I appreciate that. I can't always sit down and watch a 5 hour movie. This movie does a great job fitting the important parts of the story into a 2 hour frame. You still get a feel for the Bennett family, especially Lizzie and Mr. Bennett--who I LOVE in this movie. And Matthew MacFayden is a wonderful Mr. Darcy. He's very handsome in a different sort of way, which I find refreshing. And you won't find a better love scene than the morning mist scene toward the end. I watch this movie at least once a month.

A Romantic Saga that Captures Your Attention

Created: 06/08/06
Ever watch a movie and do something else at the same time -like ironing, pay bills, in-and-out-of-the-room and feel like you didn't miss anything of the movie? Well, this movie keeps you in place! It will keep your attention as the story unfolds.

My daughter rented this movie and after seeing it once, we started searching on Ebay so we could add this to our DVD collection. Don't you hate paying high prices for movies, when Ebay can supply a host of sellers with movies at affordable prices?

"Pride and Prejudice" is much like "Sense and Sensibility" or "The Inheritance" - set in similar time periods. It is a romance that goes through many ups-and-downs. Some of the characters you fall in love with, others you can't stand...but that's why it's called acting.

For teenage girls who like romantic movies - you will like this! Rent it first to see - and you shall agree! Then, head to Ebay!!!!!!!

Pride and Prejudice

Created: 02/04/11
One of the best love stories of all time. Mr. Darcy played by Matthew MacFayden is excellent in the role. He is tall, dark and extremely handsome. He vies for the love of Elizabeth(Lizzie)Bennet, who at first disdains him, then grows to love him. The chemistry between the two characters is electrifying. I love towards the end when Mr. Darcy comes strutting across the meadow at dawn to claim his true love. Breathtaking! Definitely worth watching!
