Storyline

Mrs. Bennet is determined to find husbands for her five daughters. The arrival of a new wealthy neighbor seems like the answer to her predicament. But while eldest daughter Jane catches Mr. Bingley's eye, middle child Mary has her nose stuck in a book, and youngest girls, Kitty and Lydia, chase after officers in uniform; Elizabeth, the willful, intelligent, and opinionated second daughter, is snubbed by haughty gentleman Mr. Darcy... In this class-minded society, can love triumph over pride and prejudice? Written by L. Hamre

excellent!
16 July 2001 | by dr_valentine_mpSee all my reviews

This is an excellent production of P&P.Though i haven't seen the A&E version to comment on that in comparison, i happen to be absolutely in love with this one.Elizabeth Garvie did a great job , she remains etched in my mind as Lizzy and is almost in every way like the character that Jane Austen intended to create in her book.

The settings have been styled in a simple way and is much like what Austen has written of.Not much has been spent on the outfits and grandeur, which makes us watch the characters and the flow of the tale more than the environment.All the other actors too seem to fit snugly into their characters.In my opinion they never can be a better version.Jane Austen would have been proud!
