Critic Consensus: No consensus yet.

Series Info

A delightful six-hour adaptation of Jane Austen's 1813 masterpiece about a young woman's rocky romance with a haughty gentleman. Superb performances by Colin Firth and Jennifer Ehle highlighted this lush BBC/A&E coproduction. While Firth won many a heart (including, later, that of a diary-writing single named `Bridget Jones') as the handsome but aloof Mr. Darcy, Jennifer Ehle received the BAFTA TV award (the British equivalent of an Emmy) for her portrayal of vivacious heroine Elizabeth Bennet.

Critics Consensus: Colin Firth iconically smolders with agonizing Pride as Mr. Darcy and Jennifer Ehle embodies the tempestuous Prejudice of Elizabeth Bennet in this lovingly rendered - and arguably definitive -- adaptation of the Jane Austen classic.
