For everyone who is rabid about this version - may I present an alternative: The BBC 1980 (produced in 1979) version.

It is definitely a lower budget with less saturated colour and Mr. Darcy - while amazingly beautiful - is never wet and scarcely even smiles at any time during the production.

But the rest of the casting is spot on.

And the few outdoor scenes show a capable hand was at the helm.

A great classic story of romance and character. Sharp and intelligent dialogue (excluding of course, Mrs. Bennett and Mr. Cummings who are nonsensical by design), delivered exceptionally well by the actors. The sets/locations and costumes are excellent. There are no special effects, battle scenes or "X-rated" moments--- this video comes from a real book, not a comic book.

My favourite by far. An accurate of the book.

By far the best, most faithful "Pride and Prejudice" adaptation. The cast is amazing, the sets are beautiful, and costumes and mannerism are as one would expect from the era. Cannot recommend it more.

By far better than the movie version. Every second of the 322 minutes well spent, whereas I was impulsed to fast forwad some parts of the movie version. How unfortunate that there was this Firth's version already, even though I personally find Knightley and Rosmund quite likable.

Definitely the best version, still. The characters are well built through this longer series

If you even typed in the search term "Pride and Prejudice" - then this mini-series is for you. Known as one of the better adaptations of the Jane Austen novel, this min-series allows you to really dive into the world of prejudice mainly because it honestly is a mini-series. This shows the value of adapting books into a mini-series style format. It's honestly the best way to deliver any books content.

Faithfully recreates Jane Austen's masterpiece. The Blu-ray has gorgeous color and hours of special features about the making of this epic. --Laura (See more of my picks by following WoodneathLaura)

Widely considered definitive, and how could you not agree? Jane Austen is doubtless looking down at this production from fluffy Regency clouds in sheer delight. This work depends on Elizabeth from beginning to end, and Jennifer Ehle interprets the role to perfection.

Mr Collins trod on my frock and tore it, you know.

She is tolerable, I suppose, but not handsome enough to tempt me.
