The relationship between Mr. Darcy, a wealthy single man, and Elizabeth Bennet, a spirited young woman, provides the core of this emotional and compelling story. Adapted by acclaimed screenplay writer Andrew Davies, the series was given an energy rarely witnessed in costume drama and an electricity heightened by Jennifer Ehle's passionate performance and Colin Firth's smouldering presence. The series was an immediate hit and took its place among the greatest ever television dramas.
Would have made Jane Austen proud -- a brillant performance.
- Pride and Prejudice review by CP Customer
For once, the screenplay does not cut corners -- it follows Jane Austen's plotline without fail, which creates all the intrigue and suspense. The actors are well cast and with the beautiful sets, costumes, stately mansions and dancing, conveys the grandeur of wealthy Georgian life. And its great fun too!
