Mr. Bennet is an English gentleman living in Hartfordshire with his overbearing wife and 5 daughters. There is the beautiful Jane, the clever Elizabeth, the bookish Mary, the immature Kitty and the wild Lydia. Unfortunately, if Mr. Bennet dies their house will be inherited by a distant cousin whom they have never met. The family's future happiness and security is dependent on the daughters making good marriages. Life is uneventful until the arrival in the neighbourhood of the rich gentleman Mr. Bingley, who rents a large house so he can spend the summer in the country. Mr Bingley brings with him his sister and the dashing, rich, but proud Mr. Darcy. Love soon buds for one of the Bennet sisters, while another sister may have jumped to a hasty prejudgment. For the Bennet sisters many trials and tribulations stand between them and their happiness.

I have seen this Mr Darcy in a couple other series MI5 and Ripper Street and he is amazing and gorgeous. Saw the P&P a while ago so I need to rewatch in view of my new BBC guy crush :)

Kiera Knightly is not my idea of Elizabeth Bennett: too pert rather than the strong-minded character that I always had read her to be.

Just skip it if you appreciate the writings or sentiments of Jane Austen. I like Knightly, say, in the Duchess (she can do period pieces, no contest. But she can't do Elizabeth.) This film is a downright travesty in comparison to even the lowest-budgeted BBC rendition. The script, terrible. The male lead chosen to be Darcy is a very bad casting call. He is a blue-eyed broody thing with no apparent stimulating intellect. Knightly is a shocking misfit for Elizabeth Bennett. The Colin Firth / Jennifer Ehle / BBC verson gets my vote.

Pretty good.

Gorgeous costumes and richly decorated sets. Dreamy landscapes (lots of mist and rain). But it is impossible to follow the plot; the dialogue is lost in a storm of noise, - background music, general commotion, etc. Worse, the articulation in the dialogue is disappointing. So one is left with vapid eye candy. Enjoyable, perhaps, as cinema; but not a decent presentation of the nuanced plot and characters of Jane Austen - See more at: http://virl.bibliocommons.com/item/show/633363043_pride_amp_prejudice#sthash.R954jQlj.dpuf
