Pride and Prejudice is a humorous story of love and life among English gentility during the Georgian era. Mr. Bennet is an English gentleman living in Hertfordshire with his overbearing wife and 5 daughters. If Mr. Bennet dies their house will be inherited by a distant cousin whom they have never met, so the family's future happiness and security is dependent on the daughters making good marriages.

about half way through this austen adaptation, elizabeth and darcy meet under these huge roman columns, amidst the pouring rain, with the verdant rolling english countryside surrounding them, when darcy utterly blindsides elizabeth by - of all things - proposing! then they proceed to argue vociferously. elizabeth informs him that he's basically the last man on earth she would ever want to marry. and yet, before darcy storms off, they share such an erotically charged moment that it puts many an overt filmic display of lust to shame.
see, that's the thing about austen. she wrote about propriety, decorum, rules, and manners, but underneath it all she was also concerned about romance, love, and individual desire.

I don't really have much of a reason for why this movie doesn't deserve five stars. Joe Wright's direction is superb and the film is simply gorgeous. The performance are all top notch, with Keira Knightley especially bringing the thunder. The story is surprisingly intriguing, and I actually found myself rooting for Mr. Darcy and Elizabeth to get together. So, I guess if I had to give a reason why this doesn't get five stars, it would have to be the complete lack of dueling in the film. At least one duel would have kicked the film up a notch. Someone get Jane Austen on the phone and tell her we need more dueling.
Pride and Prejudice has been my favorite book since I first read it at the age of eleven. Since then, I've watched every film and mini-series adaptation, and Joe Wright's version rings in at number 2. The top spot has to go to BBC's 1996 mini-series starring Colin Firth and Jennifer Ehle. That version is absolutely perfect and wonderful, but it's too long for more than once a year for me. In between, I like to watch this version because it's beautiful, easy to digest, and focuses on arguably the best parts of the story.
The cinematography is what makes this version so special and riveting. Seemingly small and insignificant moments feel passionate and…
goddddddd this movie makes me wish i had a crush on someone who wasn't a stranger, a celebrity, or an engaged professor
A fantastic modern take on a Jane Austen classic, which handles its subject material with grace, humour and respect. You'll notice that not one character kisses in the UK cut of the film.
I've watched this many a times due to my mum, but some part of me has a great respect for it and it is very watchable.
me: love is fake
me after watching this movie: i have lied.
I'm not sure why I waited so long to watch this when I literally own the DVD tbh
This was good but it's another one of those movies where I really had my hopes up that it would be AMAZING bc of its reputation so of course it let me down

The only thing I hate about Victorian literature is how only the good guys and gals get sick just by being out in the cold for 10 minutes.
Expected a BBC costume drama, got something closer to late period Terence Davies. Wright's self-consciously aestheticized tableaux and deliberately unnatural, alienating scene construction doesn't come close to matching Davies' intelligence in the way it uses composition to explore historical mythologizing and the way that out interior emotions are sculpted by our exterior actions, and hence become themselves stylized presentations shaped, in part, by the particular social and cultural codes that we're born into, but the fact that Wright is tackling these questions in a high-budget period drama based on an extremely popular literary property is an achievement in itself. I may be overrating this based on my disillusionment with contemporary mainstream British cinema, but this is quite next-level.
A comfort watch on a cold night. My biggest issue with most adaptations of "Pride and Prejudice" is that none of them quite capture how deeply funny the book is at times - the movies always get tied up in the seriousness and the romance and the class drama, and lose some of the great comedic moments. This one comes closer than some of the others.
Exactly what I needed to watch today.
First Jane Austen experience. I struggled to find the one with the pride and the one with the prejudice but apparently these are not single characters as much as it is more a general idea.
This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.
Hot take: the smooching scene for Americans is the pits. We are blessed with the transcendent last image of the proposal scene, with the sunlight pouring in between Lizzy and Darcy's ardent profiles, followed by the beautifully acted scene of Lizzy getting her dad's consent (which puts tears in my eyes, writing about it the next day). Whoever watched that and said "you know what, my heart isn't full enough, I'm not *really* convinced of the love between Lizzy Bennet and Mr. Darcy, we need a smooching scene" needs to fuck off back to coordinating monster truck rallies.
Every film that has ever been nominated for an Academy Award in any category. Enjoy!
