Storyline

Mrs. Bennet is determined to find husbands for her five daughters. The arrival of a new wealthy neighbor seems like the answer to her predicament. But while eldest daughter Jane catches Mr. Bingley's eye, middle child Mary has her nose stuck in a book, and youngest girls, Kitty and Lydia, chase after officers in uniform; Elizabeth, the willful, intelligent, and opinionated second daughter, is snubbed by haughty gentleman Mr. Darcy... In this class-minded society, can love triumph over pride and prejudice? Written by L. Hamre

Best P&P out there
1 November 2003 | by (Massachusetts, USA) – See all my reviews

When, oh when, is this version going to be out in DVD format? I've been waiting years. It's the best Pride and Prejudice out there. The dialogue is based on the book, and the character actors are excellent. It's so much better than the A&E version. I've watched my VHS tape many times a year for the past 10 years, but now I need it on DVD.
