Pride & Prejudice
Source: Catholic News Service
Fine new version of Jane Austen's evergreen classic concerning the five unmarried Bennet girls, whose mother (Brenda Blethyn) is strenuously determined to marry them off in 18th-century England, and the crossed-signals romance between Elizabeth (Keira Knightley) and the wealthy Darcy (Matthew Macfadyen) whose apparent dislike for each other -- because of his arrogance and her judgmental attitude -- masks a profound attraction. Director Joe Wright makes the settings more realistically rough-hewn than usual, but even so the film is visually stunning and its top-flight supporting players - Donald Sutherland, Judi Dench, Penelope Wilton and Tom Hollander among them -- make this highly recommendable for all ages. The USCCB Office for Film & Broadcasting classification is A-I -- general patronage. The Motion Picture Association of America rating is PG -- parental guidance suggested.
