Pride and Prejudice

Pride and Prejudice (2005)

In this retelling of Jane Austen's novel set in 19th century England, Mrs. Bennet (Brenda Blethyn) is all atwitter in hopes of marrying her daughters to prosperous gentlemen callers, especially when a wealthy bachelor moves nearby. Headstrong daughter Elizabeth (Keira Knightley) meets her match in Mr. Darcy, but misinterprets Darcy's honorable intentions and jeopardizes her chance at love. Donald Sutherland, Judi Dench and Jena Malone co-star.
My Two Cents: Charming in almost every way, and it manages to tell a love story without relying on schmaltz.

NetFlix Rank: Really Liked It
