Director Joe Wright makes the camera energetic, but never distracting, intimate, but never intrusive.

It may not be entirely what Jane Austen intended, but it's close enough and remains a pleasure.

Delightful romance, filled with warmth, wit, singing, dancing and verve: ideal entertainment.

Typically overstuffed MGM prestige product (1940), but one that came out surprisingly well, with a minimum of Eng. Lit. posturing and some elegance of design.

For pure charm and romantic diversion, for bubbling and wholesome life, we most heartily recommend this exquisite comedy about the elegant young gentleman who was proud and the beautiful young lady who was prejudiced.

Although the satire is slightly reduced and coarsened and the period advanced in order to use more flamboyant costumes, the spirit is entirely in keeping with Austen's sharp, witty portrait of rural 19th century social mores.
