4.0 out of 5 stars Another attempt to modernize a Jane Austen novel February 28, 2005
Format:DVD
If Hollywood can turn Jane Austen's "Emma" into "Clueless," then it is not surprising that they would made "Pride & Prejudice" into "A Latter-Day Comedy," as happens in this 2003 film from director Andrew Black. Once Leonard Bernstein turned "Romeo & Juliet" into "West Side Story" pretty much all things became possible in this regard. But given that Austen's heroine Elizabeth Bennett had to contend with the strictures of social class and the demands of family fidelity, there are some inherent problems in such an effort. The screenplay by Anne K. Black, Jason Faller and Katherine Swigert does this by jettisoning the parents and other adults and deciding to tell the story in Salt Lake City: Suddenly light bulbs come on and the fact this is a "Latter-Day" comedy because the characters are primarily Mormons and Elizabeth Bennett is a student at Brigham Young University in Provo, Utah.

Surprisingly, despite the success of the sterling BBC/A&E production where Collin Firth was the first Darcy I ever saw that made the role work, there has not been a theatrical version of "Pride & Prejudice" since 1940, let alone in a modern setting. So we have the new and improved Elizabeth Bennett (Kam Heskin) who is now both a student and an aspiring novelist. Instead of being saddled with four sisters she now has four housemates, Jane (Lucila Solá) from Argentina, Mary (Rainy Kerwin), Lydia (Kelly Stables), and Kitty (Nicole Hamilton). Elizabeth is snubbed by Fitzwilliam Darcy (Orlando Seale) while Jane is smitten by Charles Bingley (Ben Gourley), whose sister Caroline (Kara Holden) has her eyes set on Darcy. Then there are the new versions of Jack Wickham (Henry Maguire), Charlotte (Carmen Rasmusen), and Collins (Hubbel Palmer).

5.0 out of 5 stars A Pleasant Surprise December 23, 2004
Format:DVD
I was not really expecting a whole lot based on some of the reviews I had read about this movie. Good thing I went ahead and rented it though, for it turned out to be one of the funniest and sweetest romantic comedies I had ever seen. Even my friend, who really does not like watching movies in general, found it to be a delight. By the time the movie ended, I had decided that it was a "must-own"...yep, that good.

Storyline Snapshot: Elizabeth Bennett's life is filled with attending college, working at the local bookstore, and attempting to perfect her first novel. She has all the companionship she needs from her 4 roommmates Lydia, Kitty, Mary, and Jane...and, of course, Lydia's dog Austen. The last thing Elizabeth needs or wants is a man complicating her life. Then Lizzie's best friend, Jane, meets the man of her dreams. Unfortunately, Jane's boyfriend, Charlie, is best friends with the high and mighty Will Darcy. This means that now Elizabeth has to keep running into the proud Darcy...and every time he seems to want to pick a fight. Sound Familiar? Well, it is. I found the references to Jane Austen's work, Pride and Prejudice, fun to pick out and the rest of the story pretty original and fun. Five stars.

3.0 out of 5 stars Light and Fluffy entertainment January 7, 2005
Format:DVD
I'm addicted to most things that have a Jane Austen theme so I couldn't resist this movie in the video store. I found it to be a light and clever adaptation of Pride and Prejudice that maintained some of the moral mores of Austen's time (a religious university setting helped this a great deal). However, it is a greatly pared down version that revolves only around the central characters of the original. Gone are nearly all the supporting characters that are some of Austen's most memorable sketches of human folly.

If you take your Austen seriously don't expect this to be a faithful or meaningful adaptation. Look to it as a charming novelty to while away a couple of hours.

5.0 out of 5 stars Pride & Prejudice a Modern Twist September 7, 2004
By Anita
Format:DVD
This version of Pride & Prejudice is a beautiful & delightful modern twist on a Jane Austine classic. This relatively unknown gem was the brainchild of director Andrew Black and cinematographer Travis Cline. Filmed mostly in Provo Utah this film proves that beauty and quality can be created on a shoe string, many of the locations and the use of the vehicles seen in the film were donated. And many of the extras donated their time also. This being said there is no scrimping on style and charm and talent in this film. The main characters were played by Kam Heskin, British actor Orlando Seale, Argentinean actress Lucila Sola & a local young man Ben Gourley. I guarantee we haven't seen the last of these young actors. Kam Heskin & Orlando Seale already have other film credits under their belt. This is a light comedy distributed by Excel Entertainment Group. To get an idea of the look of this film they have a colorful website that can be found on the world web dot prideprejudice dot com This film is good clean fun perfect for a 13 to 16 year old female, although I must admit that I a 49 year old female have been mezmerized by it's charm through 4 viewings, and I can't count the times my 12 year old has seen it. So if your looking for films with a positive message and good wholesome fun for a church going daughter this is it...Thanks

5.0 out of 5 stars Loved it. October 14, 2004
By Marty
Format:DVD
Surprisingly, I laughed and laughed. My wife bought this, she's a Pride and Prejudice fan, and I ended up watching it too. Very funny, good acting, I'd say in its way, it's better than the other Pride and Prejudices I've seen (and I've had exposure to them all, admittedly mostly against my will). If you like entertaining, clever movies, this one is a good time.
