Trivia

The importance of how much characters earn as interest on their inheritance is a key element to the story. Each of the Bennet girls will only inherit one thousand pounds which would mean they would only have forty or fifty thousand pounds a year to live on. By comparison that is roughly $1,200 US in 2017 figures. This makes Mrs. Bennet's desperation to marry off her daughters far more imperative. See more »

Outstanding...MacFadyen is a worthy Darcy.
11 November 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Outstanding ... MacFadyen is a worthy Darcy and a darned good actor to boot! The scenery, backgrounds, and country folk were much more realistic than previous versions. The costumes and hairdos also seemed in keeping with the times. Another great addition is the priceless Donald Sutherland who, in a perfect world, would have had more scenes with Judy Densch. If those two can't chew up the scenery, nobody can. And, finally, Keira Knightly is a jewel. Her beauty is so apparent that it almost detracts from the fact that this is a very good actress who can hold her own in any room. This was a delight and I only wish that it could have been 6 hours long.
