Pride & Prejudice, which is an adaptation of Jane Austen's classic novel, is a 2005 romance directed by Joe Wright. Since Mrs. Bennett (Brenda Blethyn) knows that her husband's cousin Mr. Collins (Tom Hollander) will eventually inherit her family's home, she is determined to find husbands for each of her five daughters, Jane (Rosamund Pike), Elizabeth (Keira Knightley), Mary (Talulah Riley), Catherine (Carey Mulligan), and Lydia (Jena Malone). When wealthy bachelors Mr. Bingley (Simon Woods) and Mr. Darcy (Matthew Macfadyen) come to town, Mrs. Bennett excitedly introduces her daughters to them at the public ball. Much to the dismay of his snobby, upper-class family, Mr. Bingly instantly begins to show affection for Jane. However, Mr. Bingley's proud friend Mr. Darcy remains aloof during the ball, causing Elizabeth to dislike him. Elizabeth's prejudice reaches new heights when she discovers startling information about Mr. Darcy's background. When Mr. Darcy finds himself unexpectedly falling in love with independent, witty Elizabeth, he must struggle to redeem himself in order to win her heart.moreless
