Pride and Prejudice (1995)

One of the BBC’s “100 Novels That Shaped Our World”

“The best-loved book by our best-loved novelist” Independent

With its “light and bright and sparkling” dialogue, its romantic denouement and its lively heroine, Pride and Prejudice is Jane Austen’s most perennially popular novel. The love story of Elizabeth Bennet and Fitzwilliam Darcy, who misjudge, then challenge and change each other, is also a novel about the search for happiness and self- knowledge in a world of strict social rules, where a woman must marry well to survive.

 

 

My Review

I watched this movie in college between bouts of study. I kept waiting for the terrible tragedy that would inevitably come. All classics end in tragedy, right? Not so! I love a happy ending.

My Rating

5/5 for Making Me Fall in Love with Jane Austen
