Movie Info

Utah-based filmmaker Andrew Black makes his feature debut with Pride & Prejudice: A Latter-Day Comedy. The screenplay is an adaptation of the original Jane Austen novel, updated to reflect the contemporary dating situation among Mormons at Brigham Young University. Kam Heskin plays Elizabeth, an independent student who repeatedly rejects the advances of suave Jack Wickham (Henry Maguire). She lives with four roommates: best friend Jane (Lucila Solá), nerdy gal Mary (Rainy Kerwin), and the marriage-obsessed sisters Lydia (Kelly Stables) and Kitty (Nicole Hamilton). Jane starts dating the wealthy Charles Bingley (Ben Gourley), who brings around his British friend Darcy (Orlando Seale). At first, Elizabeth thinks Darcy is overly pompous, but he grows quite fond of her headstrong intelligence. Meanwhile, Charles' evil sister Caroline (Kara Holden) competes for Darcy's affections. Pride & Prejudice opened in a limited number of Salt Lake City-area theaters in December 2003.

Critic Reviews for Pride and Prejudice

All Critics (29) | Top Critics (8)

Awkward comic timing and uneven performances spoil the desired effect.

May 4, 2004

Anyone familiar with the book or BBC miniseries (or over the age of 6) will not be surprised by the outcome, except for how wholly unengaging and tedious it is made here.

The movie's real discovery ... is the shimmery Heskin -- in love with the camera and the audience, and marvelously attuned to the screwball stimuli all around her.

A better way to combine the church and Jane Austen? Rent the Colin Firth version of Pride and Prejudice and read the Book of Mormon during the slow bits.

The 2005 Joe Wright version is superb.

A good, old-fashioned movie with a pretty star, a good heart and no cynicism

Audience Reviews for Pride and Prejudice

Kind of like watching a music video. Cute and frothy. Attractive, though unknown, cast do a good job at distracting you from the fact there is not a whole lot happening here. I personally find Jane Austen movies quite dull, so to me, this modern version was an improvement.
