Synopsis: The five Bennet sisters have been raised by a mother obsessed with finding them a husband. But one of them, Lizzie, intelligent and with character, wants a life with more open perspectives, a longing backed by her father. When Mr. Bingley (Simon Woods), a wealthy bachelor, and his circle of sophisticated friends move into a neighboring mansion for the summer, the Bennetts are excited at the prospect of finding suitors. At the homecoming dance, Lizzie meets the handsome and elegant Mr. Darcy (Matthew Macfadyen), but at first glance he seems too proud and arrogant.
Review: The best adaptation of the play to date thanks to its fidelity to the narrative character and comedy nature of the original and thanks to Keira Knightley (…) almost fairytale preciousness.
