Pride and Prejudice:
‘One of the most delightful and heartwarming adaptations made from Austen or anybody else.’ Roger Ebert
**‘A sumptuous screen adaptation of Jane Austen's 1813 novel that gathers you up on its white horse and gallops off into the sunset.’ *****New York Times***
Joe Wright's debut marks the first in a series of collaborations that would cement the star power of leading lady, Keira Knightley (Atonement, Anna Karenina). *Wright's loose interpretation of Austen's classic brings an energy that should win over even the most loyal fans of the 1995 BBC miniseries.*
The classic tale of love and values unfolds in the class-conscious England of the late 18th century. The five Bennet sisters - including strong-willed Elizabeth (Knightley) - have all been raised by their mother with one purpose in life: finding a husband. When a wealthy bachelor, Mr Bingley and his friend Mr Darcy (Matthew MacFayden) arrive in the neighbourhood, opportunities for love and marriage arise.
Knightley 'gives a performance of beauty, delicacy, spirit and wit…her star quality will quite simply roll over you like a tank.' Peter Bradshaw
