Pride & Prejudice

Pride_and_prejudice Director Joe Wright’s filmic rendition of Jane Austin’s classic novel is sumptuous but never fussy. In the late 18th century, a family with five daughters attempts to marry the girls off when a wealthy bachelor with a cadre of influential friends moves into a nearby mansion. Romantic sparks fly between middle sister Elizabeth Bennet (superbly played by Keira Knightly) and snobbish malcontent Mr. Darcy (Matthew Macfadyen). Outstanding ensemble performances from Donald Sutherland, Brenda Blethyn, and Judi Dench contribute notably the film’s overall success. Keira Knightly harbors a sensual lyricism on par with anything you'd see from great French actresses like Isabelle Adjani or Juliette Binoche.

Rated PG. 127 mins. (B+) (Three Stars)
