Sparks fly when spirited Elizabeth Bennet meets single, rich, and proud Mr. Darcy. But Mr. Darcy reluctantly finds himself falling in love with a woman beneath his class. Can each overcome their own pride and prejudice?
The story is based on Jane Austen's novel about five sisters - Jane (Rosamund Pike), Elizabeth (Keira Knightley), Mary (Talulah Riley), Kitty (Carey Mulligan), and Lydia Bennet (Jena Malone) - in Georgian England. Their lives are turned upside down when wealthy young Mr. Bingley (Simon Woods) and his best friend, Mr. Darcy (Matthew Macfadyen), arrive in their neighborhood.Written by
According to the director's commentary, Carey Mulligan (Kitty) thought of her mother's funeral during her first crying scene (also her first movie). On subsequent takes, when she ran dry, Carey thought of what song would be played at her own funeral. It didn't work quite as well. See more »

Jane Austen's "Pride and Prejudice" is one of my favorite books. Due to that fact, it was crucial for me to see a worthy work from the side of filmmakers and I think that they did it. In particular, they demonstrated perfectly the mood of the characters. I saw the real emotions and feelings of Mr. Darcy. The actor greatly demonstrated Darcy's stiffness and cold-blooded. I mostly liked the part when he told about his feelings to Elizabeth. At that moment I felt his nervousness with the help of his eye play. Also, I want to talk about the actress, who played the role of Elisabeth's mother. I admired her throughout the film. Of course, we all know that her characteristics are not the gooiest one and I really cannot understand her as a mother, the way how she acted with her daughters. Nevertheless, the actress, who played this role, perfectly fitted in her role and I believed her. Thus, I think that this movie is worth watching.
