Pride and Prejudice
Pride and Prejudice (2005) is the flawless transposition (thanks to the direction of Joe Wright) of the famous novel by Jane Austen. The quiet country life of the Bennet family enlivened the arrival of some gentlemen. The sweet Mr. Bingley (Simon Woods) and the mysterious Mr. Darcy (Matthew Macfayden). And so, among the rural landscapes of late eighteenth-century England, we witness the labors of Mrs. Bennet (Brenda Blethyn), whose only desire is to marry her five daughters (without a dowry).
The protagonist is Elizabeth (Keira Knightley), the second child, a bright, intelligent, and sometimes cynical girl. She is completely different from the romantic and dreamy Jane ( Rosamund Pike ), her older sister. However, Lizzie’s certainties begin to waver in front of Mr. Darcy, so mysterious and apparently haughty… What if everyone was wrong about him? Pride and Prejudice is a gem that perfectly captures all the elegance of Jane Austen’s typical universe between dances, marriage proposals, and unspeakable secrets. One of the quintessential romantic films.
