Movie Info

In the early 19th century in the English village of Meryton, the arrival of wealthy bachelors, most notably Mr. Darcy (Laurence Olivier), stirs up the families with single daughters. Among those is the Bennet family, with five eligible daughters, including the spirited Elizabeth (Greer Garson) and her pretty older sister, Jane (Maureen O'Sullivan). As Mrs. Bennet (Mary Boland) aggressively tries to pair off her girls, Elizabeth crosses swords with the imperious Darcy.

Critic Reviews for Pride and Prejudice

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

    November 10, 2005 | Rating: A-
  • 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.

    May 20, 2003 | Rating: 4.5/5 | Full Review…
  • 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.

    January 1, 2000 | Full Review…
  • The first big-screen adaptation of Jane Austen's classic novel is an unmitigated success, with a terrific cast ably handling the author's assemblage of engaging characters.

    July 27, 2020 | Rating: 3.5/4 | Full Review…
  • Delightful romance, filled with warmth, wit, singing, dancing and verve: ideal entertainment.

    October 2, 2014 | Full Review…
  • The gentle satire of Austen's novel sits quietly, just beneath the surface, only to rise up and take the occasional bite out of offending characters at opportune moments.

Audience Reviews for Pride and Prejudice

  • Oct 25, 2011
    I heard that this movie strayed from Austen's novel so I wasn't expecting it to be as good as other adaptations. On the contrary, I found this version DELIGHTFUL! Though Laurence Oliver is a bit of a "stick in the mud" (I find his character flat) Greer Garson and her co-stars more than make up for it. I actually found the bit at the end with Lady Catherine de Bourgh which strayed from the original actually a better and more entertaining story line. What a great romantic comedy! I am sad that it took me this long to discover this gem. True that the costumes are all wrong for the time period in which Austen's story takes place but the beauty of creative license is that one can set the story in any time period, just as Romeo + Juliet has been set in modern times on more than a couple occasions.

    Absolute favorite! Greer Garson playing the infamous Elizabeth was brilliant.

    good even with liberties taken but greer is too old to be a believable nineteen year old.

    Revisiting always helps. I still maintain some problems with this classy adaptation; Joe Wright was more focused and serious while this film spills humor of stereotypical females all over the place. Even so, it is so delightful at some point that you simply can't stop watching. Disappointed, and at the same time, satisfied. 79/100
