Goofs

Early in the film Darcy assists Elizabeth into the carriage with this right hand. Afterwards the camera zooms onto this hand to show the effect that this 'first touch' has upon him. In a much later part of the film when Darcy wants to touch her again, but cannot, the camera zooms on this hand again. This time, however, it is his left hand. See more »

Absolutely Perfect 2 Hour Adaptation!
12 November 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

For years I have waited for a Pride and Prejudice that perfectly captured the wit, the intelligence, the passion and the romance of Jane Austen's classic. The 1995 mini is fabulous, and I have watched it many times, but I have always been frustrated that while it got so much of the dialogue and the detail right, it somehow fell flat on some of the more subtle dynamics of the novel.

Finally this movie adaption has captured what has before been missing! True, it took license regarding some of the verbiage and detail of the novel, but it ultimately completely captured the characters, their transformations, their strengths, their vulnerabilities and their passions. You simply cannot do a definitive work on Pride and Prejudice in two hours. And this film doesn't try. But what it does attempt--to capture the story and characters, it does beautifully. It is well acted, well directed and connects as the book connected. While it has to rush and skimp on scenes and characters, it is the most authentic and true to the spirit of the novel version that I have ever seen. You simply do not want it to end...

Well done!!!! It was about time!!!
