Pride and Prejudice


UK / USA 2005, 121 minutes
Dir. Joe Wright
Genres: Drama

Topics: Period - 1700s.


Aroview: Well-groomed incarnation of Jane Austen's early 19th century novel in which five sisters, whose family is down on their means, must navigate the shoals of romance, poverty and arranged marriage.

Centring around the second eldest, Elizabeth (Knightley), who stubbornly refuses to surrender her dreams of love and she has the misfortune to fall for the sullen, yet smouldering Darcy (McFadyen), this retains its ironic undercurrent and complexity. A skillfully subdued historical rendering is lifted into true dramatic suspense by a fine support cast, with Sutherland and Dench particular standouts.
