FROM THE BACK OF THE BOX:
Jane Austen’s classic novel about the prejudice that occurred between the 19th century classes and the pride which would keep lovers apart.
FROM THE BACK OF MY BRAIN:
“Pride and Prejudice” has been adapted time and time again. The 1995 adaptation has won favor among true literary snobs as almost being a word for word translation of Austen’s text. Finding the foothold between cinematic and obtuse, this adaptation managed to accomplish something so loving that most forget is possible. It shows that the original word can transcend media and entice new audience members into its grasp. Four dimension literary entanglement is quite the sight to behold.
This is also the version that made Colin Firth the subject of many panty moistening sessions. I wish I was kidding, but there are moments of this presentation that function as a Voight-Kampff test for chick lit nerds. That being said, there’s also the dedication to the costumes and sets to behold. I love the Joe Wright version and I think Keira Knightley knocked it out of the park. That being said, I’m a dude and I’m not the target audience for this Keepsake Edition. There is a vibrant and lively fanbase made up of women that would think of nothing better than to travel back to the Napoleonic era and live like this. This is for them and not for my classic television appreciating self. But, whatever is?
The Blu-Ray comes with over an hour of never before seen material. The 1080p transfer is really cleaned up for a TV adaptation that has made multiple trips to home video. The LPCM 2.0 track is expected for the era and source material. However, I wouldn’t have minded some better mixing in the front channels. In the end, I’d recommend a purchase to all Austenites.
