Synopsis of Pride And Prejudice
The glorious world of Jane Austen is at last brought back to the big screen in all its romance, wit, and emotional force in Pride & Prejudice. Faithful to the setting and period of the beloved novel and filmed entirely on location in the U.K, this is the first film version of the story in 65 years. The classic tale of love and misunderstanding unfolds in class-conscious England near the close of the 18th century. The five Bennet sisters - Elizabeth, or Lizzie (Keira Knightley), Jane (Rosamund Pike), Lydia (Jena Malone), Mary (Talulah Riley), and Kitty (Carey Mulligan) - have been raised well aware of their mother's (Brenda Blethyn) fixation on finding them husbands and securing set futures. News of the arrival of two distinguished gentlemen Mr. Bingley and Mr. Darcy reaches the Bennet family whose two eldest daughters Jane and Elizabeth are eligible for marriage. Jane is immediately taken with Bingley but Elizabeth finds the proud Mr. Darcy very disagreeable. She later discovers that there's more to the seemingly arrogant Darcy than first meets the eye. Joe Wright won The Carl Foreman Award for Special Achievement by a British Director, Writer or Producer in their First Feature Film at the BAFTAs 2006.
