Becky and I went to see “Pride and Prejudice” on Friday night. The Fandango website at Pride and Prejudice describes the movie as follows:
“The classic tale of love and misunderstanding unfolds in class-conscious England near the close of the 18th century. The five Bennet sisters – Elizabeth, or Lizzie (Keira Knightley), Jane (Rosamund Pike), Lydia (Jena Malone), Mary (Talulah Riley), and Kitty (Carey Mulligan) – have been raised well aware of their mother’s (two-time Academy Award nominee Brenda Blethyn) fixation on finding them husbands and securing set futures. The spirited and intelligent Elizabeth, however, strives to live her life with a broader perspective, as encouraged by her doting father (two-time Golden Globe Award winner Donald Sutherland).”
Pride and Prejudice is a great chick flick that will appeal to a very wide audience. The theater we went to was packed with a variety of people wanting to see a great romantic drama that is sure to become a classic.
The story takes place in England when women of low degree were to be seen and not heard. Keira Knightley plays a modern woman who is less concerned about securing a husband for financial gain and more interested in expressing herself as a person.
It’s a very good film that kept our interest from start to finish. Becky is not a big fan of historical or period films and she enjoyed it, so that says a great deal. Pride and Prejudice was a refreshing film where the characters had depth and you could get emotionally involved in the story. The choreography of the film, including the ballroom dances, along with the building architecture and landscape were beautiful.
If you are looking for a good movie to see this holiday season be sure and go see Pride and Prejudice.
