Pride and Prejudice

Pride and Prejudice Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Pride and Prejudice has taken its place alongside Upstairs Downstairs and I, Claudius as one of the greatest television productions of all time. The landmark adaptation from A&E and the BBC captured the hearts of millions by seamlessly translating the wit, romance and intelligence of Jane Austen's classic novel to the screen.

With a masterful script, deft direction and a star-making performance from Colin Firth (Bridget Jones' Diary, Shakespeare in Love) Pride and Prejudice transports viewers to Georgian England, where affairs of the heart are an exquisite game, and marriage the ultimate prize. But Elizabeth Bennet — spirited, independent, and one of five unmarried sisters — is determined to play by her own rules and wed for love, not money or privilege.

Re-mastered and presented on DVD for the first time as the best and most beloved adaptation of Pride and Prejudice ever! Undoubtedly a must-have addition to the library of any collector.

Wow! I got this as a gift from an aunt several years ago, and always made excuses for not watching it. As I was house-sitting recently, I pulled it out and put it in. I was planning on watching only one or two parts, as I had to get up early the next morning, but ended up staying up until 2 finishing it. A joy from beginning to end. It is one of my favorite movies ever!
Colin Firth flourishes as Mr. Darcy. The plot and dialogue are easy to follow, and the acting is superb. I would recommend this to anyone!! I have already hooked several friends on it. After watching this I immediately went out and bought the book, and am in the process of reading all of Austen's books. Buy this, you WON'T regret it!

I first saw this movie by accident. My sister was watching it and I was ticked because I couldn't watch TV. I sat on the couch in anger and pouted...except I actually started watching the movie and absolutely LOVED it. I made her rewind it (this was several years ago when it was only on VHS) and start from the beginning so I could understand it. I love everything about the movie, from the characters and their clothing to the dialogue and satire used. Elizabeth and Darcy blow me away every time I watch this movie. A definite must-see movie!
