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).

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?Read more ›
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.Read more ›
This film is wonderful, lively, romantic, and beautifully shot and I recommend it to anyone who loves a good romance.
*Word of Caution: You may find yourself hopelessly in love with Matthew McFadyen afterwards and to that I say...join the club.
It's definately worth renting. Watch it and then decide to buy it or not.
