Pride and Prejudice (1995) Rated TV-PG

Elizabeth Bennet matches wit with haughty Mr. Darcy, while her marriage-minded mother waits for a wealthy gentleman. Based on the book by Jane Austen. Starring Jennifer Ehle, Colin Firth, and Susannah Harker.

This is by far, the best interpretation of Austen’s Pride and Prejudice that I’ve seen. It’s faithful to the story and captures the essence of the book. The British, in my opinion, do an excellent job at keeping the period pieces realistic and this series does too. The actors also understand and portray the characters very well. While it does well at interpreting Austen’s work, it lacks a little of the humor that Austen likes to poke at. There are scenes added, think Darcy swimming in his pond and Mr. Collins seeing Lydia scantily clad. Although Austen never gives much sense of where each conversation happens, this series gives us the best likelihood. This series is one of the best and worth the watch.
