Jane Austen wrote one of the most beloved love story of all time, Pride and Prejudice. On January 28, 1813 this lovely tale made its debut in England. Captivating many audiences with the love trials of Elizabeth Bennett and her sister have inspired many works of art today. Pride and Prejudice was adopted into a movie in the year 2005 starring Keira Knightley as Elizabeth Bennett. To me, this movie is the most adaptive to the novel Pride and Prejudice.
Most everyone already knows the story of Pride and Prejudice before the movie even begins. A man who is anxious to marry off his five daughters to good suitors. Through out the film we are introduced to many suitors for each of the daughters. Eventually, all but four of the daughters are satisfied with a man, including Elizabeth. However, when Mr. Fitzwilliam Darcy steps into Elizabeth’s life starts to change. She finds that she truly loves Mr. Darcy. Unfortunately, Mr. Darcy has not been to honest with the Elizabeth and her family by plaguing events in the Bennets lives. As time goes on Darcy comes around and gains Elizabeth’s trust and heart again. But, will her family be able to approve of Mr. Darcy over the other man who entered her life before?
Pride and Prejudice is a timeless love story with following Elizabeth Bennet and her struggle with love. Finding it in her strength to go with her heart, she does make the right decision. One of the most inspirational stories of all time has been brought to life many times, but the 2005 version to me is the best.
