One of the greatest love stories of all time, Pride & Prejudice, comes to the screen in a glorious new adaptation starring Keira Knightley. When Elizabeth Bennett (Knightley) meets the handsome Mr. Darcy (Matthew MacFadyen), she believes he is the last man on earth she could ever marry. But as their lives become intertwined in an unexpected adventure, she finds herself captivated by the very person she swore to loathe for all eternity. Based on the beloved masterpiece by Jane Austen, it is the classic tale of love and misunderstanding that sparkles with romance, wit and emotional force. Critics are calling it "Exhilarating. A joy from start to finish" (Carina Chocano, Los Angeles Times).

Read the book a thousand times... and thanks again iTunes! You made my day by adding this to your "For a limited time"- sale!!!! So happy!!!
I really do watch this movie at least once a month. At one point, I watched it 5 times in one week. The language is compelling and the music is moving. All of the characters are perfectly cast. Can't get enough of this movie!!
This movie is excellent for collection. Amazing casting, and beautiful pictures.
Such a wonderful romance movie. This is my favorite ever!!!
The acting was AMAZING! I absolutely love the actors and everything was well played.
Love love love this movie, can not describe it.
A fantastic romantic movie that’s for anyone who loves romance and time period dramas. I have watched this movie over and over again it never gets old.
I was hooked from the beginning to end. The suspense and tension which were created and heightened every time Darcy and Elizabeth would encounter eachother ensured that I stayed invested in the movie every single second. The accuracy of emotion and social standards set at the time is truly spectacular. I would reccomend this movie to anyone in search for a romance to become enthawlled in! (:
always loved the storyline of the movie👌🏼
I have been IN LOVE with this film, since we watched in Senior year English class!! I never get tired of watching! It’s a beautiful story, and watching Darcy profess his love still makes my heart ache!😍😍
One of my all time favourite movies
Being familiar with the BBC version, this one was disappointing. Knightly is terrible (I've never been a fan), and they've stripped away much of Austen's humour and the charm of the era (although the costumes are good).
The MOST disturbing disparity is that society then was "male" dominated and is portrayed periodically as female dominated as particularly seen in Mrs. Bennet. The disparity of these dynamics create a confusing story line. Miss Austen does not write Mrs Bennet speaks to the Master (Mr Bennet) of the house as she appears to be inclined to do in the film. It is as though the movie is divided between following Miss Austen's story and appealing to today's sensibilities. But such is the draw of Miss Austen's stories that despite the conflict and confusion between eras of then and now, they continue to be thoroughly enchanting.
Beautiful story line, beautiful characters, beautiful music, beautiful script...and what girl wouldn't want a dashing man to come walking out of the mist in early morning, and profess his undying love? "If your feelings are still what they were last April, tell me so at once. My affections and wishes have not changed, but one word from you will silence me forever...If, however, your feelings have changed, I will have to tell you...you have bewitched me, body and soul, and I love...I love...I love you. I never wish to be parted from you from this day on." You simply can't get more eloquent and tender than that! I'm ruined for any real life men, because only this caliber will do...oh,well...
While not bad as a period romance, there are significant departures from the novel, to the point of being distracting. One example of this is in the actors' lines; there is lots of "original" dialogue in the movie. Not sure why it was felt necessary to create this, as the book has lots to draw from. The "new" dialogue sounds neither authentic nor compatible with the dialogue from the book. In many instances, it jars or it nuances the character in a way that is not faithful. I guess I am too much of an Austen fan to be able to accept so much unnecessary alteration.
The chemistry between Elizabeth and Mr. Darcy was excellent. The story was gorgeous (I should know. I read the book like a trillion times) and I am a big fan of Jane Austin. If she had lived to see this film, I don't think she could have been prouder.
I was certain that I would never like Pride and Prejudice. I mean, I was never a chick-flick kinda girl. But a friend recommended it to me and she has never lead me wrong on any movie since we have similiar tastes. So I rented it and watched it and fell in love. It is great movie and a great list of actors (I've since fallen in love with Matt Macfayden - who I believe to be the best Mr. Darcy beside Colin Firth). I would gladly recommend this movie to any one of my friends. If you're a romantic at heart, you'll love this movie.
When you need a good dose of movie romance, this is lovely. I've watched it a few times now and always find something new. A must-have in your collection.
The plot, theme and meaning of the book has never seemed so poorly portrayed before. There are many other much better film adaptations and instead of using the modern film quality to have beautiful shots, the dialogue which Jane Austen is famous for was completely changed and so changed the characters. Manny of Lizzie's lines are taken from other characters so the other characters lose the multifaceted depth they once possessed and Lizzie seems like a spoiled know-it-all. Keira Knightly once again, plays a very angry irritating woman no different than any of her other characters. The house of the middle class family is in the middle of a pigsty. The list goes on with ridiculous exaggerations and glaring errors. If you like Pride and Prejudice, then this, is quite simply is tommyrot.
I first watched this movie in the UK. It was brilliant especially the ending, very Jane Austin. She exits the room after talking to her father about her choice to marry Darcy. She exits the house with her hands outstretched to Darcy. The music plays and the scene begins to fade... you know the part if you have seen the movie and read the book. I was mortified to discover in North America a tacky, tasteless, over romantic kissing scene that draws the audience away from the intent of the movie and original book was added to be more appealing to a N.A. audience. Due to this ending I given it 2 stars. However, I give the UK version 5 stars.
I absolutely love this movie, it's such a beautiful adaptation. Everything is so perfect. I highly recommend!!
I really enjoyed this adaptation of Austen's novel, particularly the real life aspects brought to it eg the laundry and mud everywhere, and the scene where they're all lounging about looking unlady-like when no one is looking. I imagine that life back then resembled this much more than other picture-perfect regency films.
My favorite version of this classic story.
For anyone wishing to spend their money a movie I can assure you that it would be better spent elsewhere. This movie lacks any real cinnamic features and the story line is boring.
beautifully filmed, great actors, loved it!
