Pride and Prejudice (2005)

The date verification is because there are about fifteen thousand versions of P and P. I must say this is the most visually interesting movie I've seen in a while, mostly because it doesn't rely on tricky shots or special effects. It just uses (extremely) long takes and tracking shots to soak in the atmosphere. I'd say it's probably the best Jane Austen film I've seen, along with Emma from a few years back. Haven't seen Sense and Sensibility, though.

Yes, this is the fourth movie I've seen in a week. Fifth if you count Harry Potter twice.

I'm looking forward to seeing this as Pride and Prejudice is one of my favorite books.

I want to see it this weekend, every review I've read says it's so good.I am in the mood for some sappy romance even though I don't believe in that crap

I was under the impression that it was released in the US months ago, but there you go.

It's a great adaptation. Not quite as good as the BBC version (with Colin Firth), but still enjoyable. Matthew MacFadyen surprised me at how well he pulled off the Darcy character - he's always seemed very dull, but he brushes up wonderfully in it

It's beautiful, I think Keira makes the movie.

She's completely charming in it, and of course gorgeous.

Mrs. Darcy.. Mrs. Darcy..

I still enjoy the BBC version very much so really want to go see this one now. Darn and I hate going to the movies. Guess I'll make down there sometime next week.

Here we go again, another holiday season full of movies I want to see. When I go to the theatre at this time of year I always manage to pick up some kind of a cough, cold or flu! This is another movie I've added to my ever growing list of new flicks I want to see!

I can't bring myself to watch this version. The BBC A&E version is the best adaptation of Pride and Prejudice out there.

I haven't seen it, but Keira Knightley doesn't strike me as an Elizabeth type. The commercials make them seem poorer than they are and the guy who plays Mr. Darcy just isn't Mr. Darcy.

I just can't do it.

The BBC/A&E version is so wonderful that I can't even bring myself to contemplate seeing another one. Just beyond fantastic, really.

The BBC version was on the Biography Channel this past weekend (or was it Friday, ). I watched it again, this is probably my 7th or 8th time seeing it. I just love that version. I love Jane Austin and can't tell you how many times I have watched Sense and Sensibility. Hugh Grant

I'm looking forward to seeing this version. Although I will be sitting alone in the theater because there is no way my husband will go and see this. Too much of a chick flick for him.

someone asked me to see this movie... but from the sound of it, it sounds like that BBC version is the better one? Would that one be easy to find from a library, or maybe like a typical rental place?
