Hearing their new neighbour is a wealthy young bachelor, Mrs. Bennet (Blethyn) goes overboard contriving a match for one of her five daughters. Amiable Bingley (Simon Woods) duly falls for beautiful Jane (Pike). Unhappily, his even more eligible chum Darcy (MacFadyen) disdains the Bennets, his growing attraction to spirited Elizabeth (Knightley) handicapped by her ghastly relatives, scandal and misunderstandings galore...
Not as divine as Ang Lee's Sense and Sensibility, but engagingly comparable to the Gwyneth Paltrow-starring Emma and vastly superior to Mansfield Park
