A likable and suprisingly good Jane Austen movie with a perfect cast. There is also a lot of beautiful landscapes and costumes making this one of the better-looking films based upon the novel. The film will still pale to the different miniseries' richness and expanded running time that have time to explore the story, but this was actually a good movie with charm and the right amount of heart.
Absolutely useless in every respect. Yet another proof of Keira Knightley's inability to act. It's like casting Ben Affleck for The Godfather. Don't get me even started on the cry-baby casting of Darcy here.. For those who haven't seen the only REAL adaptation of Pride and Prejudice -> the 1995 mini-series by Simon Langton is in order immediately.
A satisfyingly textural, if manic, adaptation of a hopelessly overwrought story. The cast and production design go a long ways towards making the remote and alien mores of the story feel specific and lived-in. I particularly liked Sutherland's mix of conventions-be-damned idiosyncrasy with recognizable fatherly pride and affection. And Tom Hollander and Kelly Reiley bring some much-needed wit.
