Pride & Prejudice (2005): 10 out of 10: Romantic costume dramas are what we would call a gift film for that significant other who drove an hour to the theater with you to see the limited run of the new Godzilla film. So imagine my pleasant surprise when the picture itself was not just bearable, but one of the best films I have seen this year.
Fortunately, I saw Pride and Prejudice and Zombies before this flick, so I could follow along with the story. The costumes, sets, cinematography, and acting are all spot on. There is no reason to make any more versions of Pride and Prejudice they have hit perfection.
Really not much more to say. I teared up a bit at the end when the poor girl with only a few servants marries the rich man with dozens of servants saving her from a life of living in a house with only one parlour for fainting.
Anyway, this is one of the finest costume dramas I have “suffered” through. Be prepared for an unhealthy number of Kiera Knightly screenshots. I missed the lack of zombie action, however.
