A delightful movie indeed. One of the few "romantic" movies I can actually and enjoy without feeling sick (but honestly, I'd rather read the book or watch one of the longer versions!). Those who characterize Pride and Prejudice as purely romantic are missing the larger point of the work, which admittedly does not translate as well as I would like into this version of the movie.

Pride and Prejudice is not a novel about the love lives of the Bennett girls. Pride and Prejudice is a story about the pride and prejudice of two people, and how that plays out in the world. The characterization of Jane Austen's characters is fascinating, though, once more, rather rushed in this version. For those who "do not have time" to watch either of the 5 hour versions (http://sophiesmindset.blogspot.com/2007/05/nothing-but-very-deepest-love-will_11.html; http://sophiesmindset.blogspot.com/2008/08/jane-austens-pride-and-prejudice.html), and are too lazy to pick up the book to read will find the gist of the plot in this movie. And it is done rather well, all things considered.

I think the casting is excellent ... aside from Kiera Knightly who really just rubs me the wrong way as Lizzie. Just realize that if you do not supplement this version with the longer one, or with the book, you are missing out on so much of what Austen filled her book with: character analysis and real people, not a sappy romance.

This is a great movie. It is one of my all time favorite love stories. Keira Knightley is amazing as "Lizzie". She has the right amount of sass,desire, and passion. The basis of the story is a typical poor girl meets rich guy. At first rich guy sneers at girl but then slowly falls in love with her and she at first sneers at him and then she falls in love with him. I espically like the scenes at the dances and when Lizzie tells off her suitor. One thing I think this is more of a women's movie, but anyone can enjoy it!

Love this movie. About two strong prersonalities that at first seem to repel each other then attract. Beautiful to see quiet acts of love that are not proud or boastful but thoughtful and caring. This movie shows selfless love.
