Jane Austen's Pride and prejudice by Simon Langton( visu )
3 editions published between 2000 and 2009 in English and held by 88 libraries worldwide
Despite some plot alterations, this version of 'Pride and Prejudice' remains largely faithful to the tone of the original novel. The film is set in England, 1835, at a time when women's rights and power over their destiny was minimal. The story is that of the Bennets, a family of mixed fortune and five unmarried daughters. Mrs Bennet is depicted as a scheming, opportunistic woman who wishes her children to marry into wealth and high society rather than pursue personal happiness. The most wilful of the Bennet daughters, Elizabeth, is a woman of intelligence and cunning who seeks to control her marital fate. Enter one of Austen's most intriguing male characters, Mr Darcy, a snob and an emotionally remote man who insults Elizabeth upon meeting her, throwing the course of true love well off course. Lush production values make 'Pride and Prejudice' a fine example of the classical Hollywood cinema machine at work. Like Austen's novel, this film seeks to address, albeit in a comedic manner, the constraints of the social mores of the time for men and women; the enforced economic dependence of women on menfolk; and the snobbery and acute class awareness of the era
