Synopsis: The best known of the Austen literary film adaptations, Pride and Prejudice is a beloved tale about misplaced pride and class prejudice, which nearly keeps two otherwise perfectly matched souls apart. This was the monumental film that thrust Colin Firth and Jennifer Ehle into stardom as Mr. Fitzwilliam Darcy and Ms. Elizabeth Bennett.
The two seem destined to mutual hatred until a series of sisterly romantic entanglements and chance encounters contrive to peel back the layers of pride and guide them towards mutual love and respect. Filled with plenty of comic relief in the persons of Mr. Collins and Mr. Bennett, this is period drama at its finest.
