Pride & Prejudice (2005) - Reviewed


My Overall Rating : 7/10

If there is a movie which does not require any reviews, I'm sure it would be this one! I don't exactly know if this was the second or third time that Jane Austen's classic masterpiece was made into a movie, but this version is definitely most famous by far. The movie stars Keira Knightley, Mathew Macfadyen, Carey Mulligan, Rosamund Pike, Donald Sutherland and many others. The casting is all English, which is again quite usual. 

We surely know the plot of Pride & Prejudice because young girls pick up this book soon after finishing Snow White! The movie is very loyal to the book through out. You can see the locations and countryside of Georgian era England. I would like to draw your attention to the sound score of the movie, personally I loved it (the background score when Darcy and Elizabeth dance for the first time). 

No matter how reserved and pride Mr. Darcy seems, you'll love him anyway. Also, Elizabeth Bennet's sharp remarks and wit is unavoidable and you'll enjoy them surely. As all other Jane Austen's novels this one too depicts the social conditions of the then England and the position of females.

Lastly, I would suggest that this is one movie which defines the genre of Period Movies and you can't go on missing it. Absolute treat!
