A&E®‘s cherished and critically-acclaimed production of Jane Austen’s enduring classic arrives in its most lavish and comprehensive set in the Pride and Prejudice: Keepsake Edition available on Blu-ray and DVD January 14 from Lionsgate Home Entertainment. Winner of Emmy®, BAFTA, National Television UK, Television Critics Association and Writers Guild of Great Britain Awards, this sensational adaptation has taken its place as one of the greatest television productions of all time. The landmark mini-series captured the hearts of millions by seamlessly translating the wit, romance and intelligence of Jane Austen’s classic novel to the screen and launched the career of Academy Award®-winner, Colin Firth (The King’s Speech).
With a masterful script, deft direction and star-making performances from Colin Firth and Jennifer Ehle (Zero Dark Thirty), Pride and Prejudice transports viewers to Georgian England, where affairs of the heart are an exquisite game, and marriage the ultimate prize. But Elizabeth Bennet-spirited, independent and one of five unmarried sisters-is determined to play by her own rules and wed for love, not money or privilege. Will her romantic sparring with the mysterious and arrogant Darcy end in misfortune -or will love’s true nature prevail?
Now, nearly 20 years after this masterful production first graced television screens – and 200 years since the original novel was published – the exquisite Pride and Prejudice: Keepsake Edition arrives with never-before-released bonus material including a featurette celebrating the 200th anniversary of Jane Austen’s most popular novel, and two featurettes exploring love, courtship, money and social class in the early 19th century England. An ideal Valentine’s Day gift, this set is the definitive way to experience one of the greatest love stories ever told and will be available on Blu-ray and DVD 2-disc sets for the suggested retail price of $29.99 and $19.98, respectively.
