Trivia

All the exterior Pemberley sequences and some of the interior, including the sculpture gallery, were shot at Chatsworth House, property of the Duke of Devonshire. As the house functions as a private home and is also the most visited stately home in England, several of the interior shots could not, however, be done there and were instead shot in Wilton House, Wiltshire.

Goofs

While sitting in the woods "quite close to" Mr Darcy's house with her Aunt and Uncle, Lizzie is wearing a dark brown dress with a lighter colored coat. But when they go to see the house, Lizzie's dress has changed to a cream striped dress with the same coat as before. In the book the party of 3 decide to visit Pemberley the following day. In this film the changing of the dress and the fact that they clearly arrive at Pemberly in the early morning are supposed to indicate albeit rather subtly that it is the following day without having written it into the script.

Outstanding...MacFadyen is a worthy Darcy.
11 November 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Outstanding ... MacFadyen is a worthy Darcy and a darned good actor to boot! The scenery, backgrounds, and country folk were much more realistic than previous versions. The costumes and hairdos also seemed in keeping with the times. Another great addition is the priceless Donald Sutherland who, in a perfect world, would have had more scenes with Judy Densch. If those two can't chew up the scenery, nobody can. And, finally, Keira Knightly is a jewel. Her beauty is so apparent that it almost detracts from the fact that this is a very good actress who can hold her own in any room. This was a delight and I only wish that it could have been 6 hours long.
