Cast: Keira Knightley, Matthew MacFadyen, Rosamund Pike, Donald Sutherland, Brenda Blethyn
Director: Joe Wright

Author Jane Austen’s ‘Pride & Prejudice’ remains one of the most enduring classics of English literature.  After a successful TV version, here is the period literature on the wide screen.

One of the greatest love stories of all time, the story tells the tale of love and misunderstanding that sparkles with romance, wit and emotional force. It revolves around the Bennet family, a middle-class family in England around 1800. Elizabeth ‘Lizzie’ Bennet (Keira Knightley) is one of five sisters in the line for marriage, along with the serene and beautiful Jane, the bookish Mary, the immature Kitty and Lydia, the youngest, most wild and impetuous. After the loss of their father, Lizzie’s mother (Brenda Blethyn) can’t wait to find the right gentlemen for her daughters, who must be paired off with the finest, richest husband available who will help support the family.

It’s Elizabeth, the heady strong willed girl who gives her heart away when she meets the new entrant into their neighborhood, the wealthy and handsome Mr. Darcy (Matthew MacFadyen). She believes he is the man for her and no one else. Her sister Jane is also smitten by the charms of Mr. Darcy’s friend, Mr. Blinkley. But it’s not all easy going for the Bennet sisters, as many trials and tribulations come between them and their happiness, including class, gossip and scandal. Soon Lizzie finds herself captivated by the very person she loved. This is just the beginning of their wonderful love story.

Keira Knightley gives off a splendid performance with her tomboyish attitude that is bang on perfect, contrasting to her older sister, Jane (Rosamund Pike), who is as demure and private. The film is set in the English countryside, so watch out for some charming locations.

The entertainment value of the movie itself makes ‘Pride & Prejudice’ worth watching, and add to that a few bonus materials and it’s the ideal romance for that weekend date.
