Keira Knightley, Matthew Macfadyen, Brenda Blethyn

Joe Wright’s debut marks the first in a series of collaborations that would cement the star power of leading lady, Keira Knightley (Atonement, Anna Karenina). Wright’s loose interpretation of Austen’s classic brings an energy that should win over even the most loyal fans of the 1995 BBC miniseries.

The classic tale of love and values unfolds in the class-conscious England of the late 18th century. The five Bennet sisters – including strong-willed Elizabeth (Knightley) – have all been raised by their mother with one purpose in life: finding a husband. When a wealthy bachelor, Mr Bingley and his friend Mr Darcy (Matthew MacFayden) arrive in the neighbourhood, opportunities for love and marriage arise.
