    Good for the Collection

    While not the best film version of "Pride and Prejudice," the performances of Greer Garson and Sir Laurence Olivier are worth seeing. The best remains the BBC mini-series with Colin Firth. Or, if you don't have the time, watch the movie with Keira Knightly.

    Almost 4 Stars...but Not Quite.

    It was hard for me to decide between 3 and 4 stars, but I didn't base that on how accurate this adaptation is. Frankly, I think it's the least faithful to the novel, BUT it is much more enjoyable than the 1980 BBC version where the acting was very awkward and fake. I think Mr. Darcy wasn't nearly as snobby in this version as he should have been, but it was still enjoyable. The first time I watched it, I stopped it after 5 minutes because the costumes are just all wrong, but from what background reading I've been doing, I think they may have done that on purpose as some sort of war propaganda. To me, the most important thing is that they stay faithful to the spirit of the novel, and that was definately present in this version. Anyway, the music is goodthe acting (for that time) is good, and the overall plot was compressed in a way where it didn't take out any of the absolute essentials. Of course, I would have liked to see Lizzy visiting Pemberley, but oh well. Overall, it's okay, but my favorite P&P adaptation will always be the 1995 A&E version with Colin Firth.
