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 Hartfordshire 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 dependant on the daughters making good marriages.
goddddddd this movie makes me wish i had a crush on someone who wasn't a stranger, a celebrity, or an engaged professor
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.
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.

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…
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.
Excellent Austen adaptation.
Too bad someone decided to cast that anorexic walking jaw.
When will the world realise that that woman can't act?
She completely drags this beautifully shot and otherwise well acted film down.
Lizzie Bennett is the second of five siblings, whose mother is eager to get them all married before she and her husband pass away. The story begins when a man purchased the house in Netherfield, with stories about him being quite wealthy, prompting Mrs. Bennett to introduce her daughter to him. That man is Mr. Bingley - he gets enamored with Jane and falls in the good graces of the family. Needless to say, his friend Mr. Darcy was not as fortunate as he was, immediately striking an attitude but has taken an interest to Lizzie, as it is only she who seem to rebuff his opinions and thoughts. As the story goes, we get to watch them develop their feelings for each other, particularly when circumstances arise, such as the incidents with Mr. Wickham and Mr. Darcy’s role in Jane’s heartbreak.

if u see me log this film its bc im STRESSED &
probably want to die but im pretending everything is FINE
This is the best movie ever! i love jane austen and this is so much like the book!!
my only criticism is mr. darcy's uglie ass hair
This is my ultimate "warm blanket" film. As far as I'm concerned, there isn't a single sour note to be found anywhere in this production. Gorgeous scenery that is beautifully shot, lovely score, convincing performances. I actually prefer this to the much-loved A&E version; it's more cinematic and it goes down smooth, like a cup of hot cocoa.
I CAN'T BELIEVE I WENT SO LONG WITHOUT HAVING READ PRIDE AND PREJUDICE OR WATCHED JOE WRIGHT'S 2005 MASTERPIECE
Wtf is wrong with me. I gave this 3 stars a long time ago but in reality perfect adaption is perfect. I mean, even thought they left out little details it was fine because they left out the right little details. Made me cry at all the parts I cried when I read the book (granted, I cry very easily) And chose a lovely cast and they chose perfect scenery and beautiful music. Where have I been all this time? Why wasn't I watching this? Shame on me.
parts where my hairs stood up, i was shook, i screeched etc:
-"ur mother will never see you again if you do not marry mr.collins..and
i will never see you again if you do"
-entire rain scene
-that part when he barges into her room to propose and shes like sit down and he doesnt and shes like should i get us some tea and hes so frazzled he just leaves u know what im sayiNGGfuCK
It really is a gorgeous picture. Ugh. Tears me apart. The god damn scene in the God damn rain. GOD DAMN. and the sunrise embrace. Holy fuck is that real? They must've had such a small window to capture that on camera. Holy fuck. The dialogue is a lot of fun. I dig it. Wish my vocabulary was that readily available in conversation.
