Product Description

Product Description

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).

By Lawrance M. Bernabo HALL OF FAME TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:DVD
Like most people who love literature I was well aware that Jane Austen could write, but the idea that Keira Knightley can act and hold her own against the likes of Dame Judy Dench was a revelation. Granted, Knightley has not particularly been called upon to turn in great acting performances in most of her films. In "Love Actually" she is basically required to look pretty and her best moments are reaction shots rather than dialogue. She has many more moments such as that in "Pride & Prejudice," but she also proves herself proficient at the witty dialogue. Knightley filmed this version as her final film as a teenager and the results are comparable to when Franco Zeffirelli cast the teenage Olivia de Hussey in "Romeo & Juliet."

This becomes the most romantic version of "Pride & Prejudice" because we are not surprised along with Lizzie when Darcy shows up and makes the most backhanded proposal of marriage in the history of Western literature. The screenplay by Deborah Moggach (Emma Thompson receives special thanks in the credits, apparently for script doctoring) makes one significant change in the proceedings by simply having the moment when Mr. Darcy (Matthew MacFadyen) falls for Lizzie clearly written on his face. At the Meryton ball she finds the perfect moment to throw the callous words that she has overheard back into his and with the rapier still skewering her victim she turns on her heels and walks away in triumph.

When next he sees her she has walked over to Mr. Bingley's house to care for her sister Jane (Rosamund Pike), who has been taken ill because of the matrimonial machinations of their mother. Lizzie's hair is down and she is positively glowing.

5.0 out of 5 stars Finely executed adaptation Nov. 3 2006
Format:DVD
Like many loyalists to the BBC series of P&P, when I heard they were making a movie I couldn't help thinking, "Why?"

This movie adaptation of Jane Austen's classic was always doomed to suffer by comparison, and I had my reservations before seeing it. Having read the book, seen the old old BBC adaptation (where Mr Darcy walked around like he had a stick up his bum) and sat through many marathons with friends of the 1995 version, I didn't think there was anything more you could possibly do to improve on the latter (despite the fact I've always been a little annoyed the actors were way too old for the parts).

The opening scenes may lead a viewer to think the movie was structured around the most famous lines, with filler in-between. This notion is soon disabused, however. To fit the story into two hours of film time, it's true some finer details were left out, and some side characters are dealt with briefly - I think that, perhaps ironically considering the number of toes the movie has stepped on so far, this is a movie best enjoyed by people who have already read the book and seen the 1995 version and can fill in the gaps themselves, without having to sit through over 5 hours of it. There is no fluff in this movie, and yes, as other reviewers have noted, it focuses on Lizzy and Darcy almost at the expense of other characters. But when you are making a movie adaptation of a book, you should never fall into the trap of wanting EVERYTHING a la Harry Potter 1 and 2: you must decide what the focus will be, and what can be cut.

So, comparisons aside, what makes this movie worth 5 stars?

5.0 out of 5 stars Short and sweet, but worth it Feb. 15 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I was used to the BBC version of Pride & Prejudice with Colin Firth, so this version is a bit different. Primarily, it is a lot shorter, typical feature film length. Because of the short length the story is truncated, but unless you are a tried and true P&P fan you'll barely notice. The best aspect is the cinematography. Watch for the scene at the party where the camera floats around the house and you see people walking around looking for, or avoiding, other guests.

5.0 out of 5 stars I loved this movie July 27 2014
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
I loved this movie. I have not read Austen & it took a while for my wife to get me to actually watch it, but having done so it was a very pleasant couple of hours. All the actors played their parts convincingly, so that, for example, I just got so annoyed with Mrs Bennet. Any time I get annoyed with the character I figure the actor is doing their job well. The two leads, Keira Knightly & Matthew Macfayden were well cast & more than held their end up totally believable.
The only other version I have watched is the Bollywood version "Bride & Predjudice", which is much more of a comic take. Now I have to see the BBC Colin Firth version & see how that compares.
My only complaint is that we skip right past Elizabeth's wedding & do not see any of it. A special nod to the cinematography which was just superb & showed the lushness of England's countryside to perfection. I recommend this.

4.0 out of 5 stars At first they walking through the motions Nov. 3 2013
By bernie TOP 100 REVIEWER
Format:Blu-ray
I guess I am spoiled by the Colin Firth version or presentation. This presentation they plow through, talk fast and spend more time making faces. However the wide long shots of the country side are impressive (especially in Blu-ray). I have seen some to the houses in a TV production on "Great Houses of Britain". However Donald Sutherland is a good contributor as Mr. Benet.

Oh Great Scott, forget about what I said in the first paragraph as the presentation finally picks up as everyone gets over the initial deceptions. So do not give up on this movie too early. Finally we get the highs and lows that we planned on.

It is not the easiest thing to tell the story as by the time you view this presentation you should already be familiar with Jane Austen. If not we do not eat to give too many things away. To say that the Bennet family of all daughters will lose their meager estate at the passing of the father. Only a male can inherit property.

So it is time to marry off the daughters. As the story unfolds you will understand the title of the story. The main focus is on the banter between Elizabeth Bennet and Mr. Darcy surrounded by others that are also posturing. Is there opportunity that all well be well in the end or will the whole thing unravel?

For people not acquainted with Jane Austin you will see that she is not an obscure writer of only a hand full of novels but someone that was taken from us too soon.

Screenplay by Deborah Moggach. We have not heard the last from her yet.
