There comes a time in every persons life that they must watch this movie. A cinematic masterpiece. Kiera Knightley is the Elizabeth Bennett of our dreams. As if the movie isn't anything less than perfect- the soundtrack gives you clear skin and joy all around.

Great movie. The ending is a great movie version. Nice soundtrack. Great choice of actors/actresses to play the characters, especially Keira Knightley and Matthew Macfadyen, great facial expression, great dialogues.

THIS! This one give me all the feels! This is my favorite adaptation of "Pride and Prejudice" and I could watch it over and over again! The score and cinematography are beautiful and Kiera Knightly is at her best; I fell in love with it the first time watching it and every single time after that!

I am going to be honest, I had very little knowledge of the Pride and
Prejudice story, but wow, I get it. My roommate had me watch this the other
night, and it’s such a great film. The overall story definitely gives me little
women vibes. I absolutely fell in love with Kiera Knightley’s character,
Elizabeth, who demonstrated so much bravery and emotion surrounding her
family and community’s expectation of her. I would say Elizabeth’s
relationship with her father was what really made the film for me though. He
wanted only the best for her, and trusted that she could make that decision.
He believed she deserved the world, and made sure if she was to leave his
home that, that was what she would be receiving. It’s such a wonderful story
that shows love in the many forms it can take. I just loved it.

Watch the 1995 version featuring Colin Firth and Jennifer Ehle if you want to see a faithful, well-performed adaptation of Jane Austen's "Pride and Prejudice."

This movie does injustice to the book in every aspect. The characters are unrecognizable; gone is the witty charm of Elizabeth Bennet, the composed nature of Mr. Darcy, the silliness of Mr. Collins and all those at whose expense Jane Austen makes the reader laugh. In fact, forget about getting an ounce of joy from this movie. The action is heavy with melodrama of an obnoxious, depressing kind. Characters range from forgettable (good luck telling Elizabeth's sisters apart, save Jane) to downright creepy (Mr. Collins and, to some degree, even Mr. Darcy himself).

The performances of the cast are poor and over-dramatic. The film is shot in the same fashion, trying too hard to be "art" and in the process losing any semblance of story. I had heard a lot of good things about the music score prior to seeing the movie, but the action was so over the top and the sets so chaotic, that I honestly cannot recall a single note.

The book and the 1995 adaptation left me feeling happy. This movie was such a let-down. I do not recommend it, except for fans of melodramatic romance.

Definitely and undoubtedly, the Collin Firth version is by far both more classsy and classic. The girls' characters have somewhat been changed. While I can no longer remember the original characters in the book, I find myself hardly agreeable with Ms Lizz's facetious attitude, not to mention the darkened tone throughout the entire movie. Strongly suggest the 6-episode version not to be missed.

This movie perfectly brings the book to life! Kiera knightly is Elizabeth Bennett! Great movie.

When I picture Elizabeth Bennett, I picture Keira Knightley. The film is soft and romantic and witty. One of my favorite films.

The party is probably my favorite scene in the entire movie; it's well done and it feels like people are actually having fun.

Elizabeth Bennet: Only the deepest love will persuade me into matrimony, which is why I will end up an old maid.

Mrs. Bennet: "Have you no compassion for my poor nerves?!?" Mr. Bennet: "You mistake me, my dear. I have the highest respect for them. They've been my constant companion these twenty years..."

Mrs Bennet: "Mr. Bennet, do something!!!"
Mr. Bennet with a deep sigh, "Elizabeth, your mother will never see you again if you don't marry Mr. Colins. And . . . I will never see you again if you do."
Elizabeth with a grateful smile, "Thank you, Papa."

Pride and Prejudice is a humorous story of love and life among English gentility during the Georgian era. Mr Bennet is an english gentleman living in Hartfordshire with his overbearing wife. The Bennets 5 daughters; the beautiful Jane, the clever Elizabeth, the bookish Mary, the immature Kitty and the wild Lydia. Unfortunately for the Bennets, if Mr Bennet dies their house will be inherited by a distant cousin whom they have never met, so the family's future happiness and security is dependant on the daughters making good marriages. Life is uneventful until the arrival in the neighbourhood of the rich gentleman Mr Bingley, who rents a large house so he can spend the summer in the country. Mr Bingley brings with him his sister and the dashing (and richer) but proud Mr Darcy. Love is soon in the air for one of the Bennet sisters, while another may have jumped to a hasty prejudgment. For the Bennet sisters many trials and tribulations stand between them and their happiness, including class, gossip and scan
