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).

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.

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.

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

This movie is different than most. It's supposed to be. ;o)

This film is set in the LDS singles' scene in Provo, UT. But you wouldn't know that unless you had been there and lived in it. If you're LDS, and have experienced some of the singles' culture there, the film will be all the more rich and funny for you. If you're not, you'll miss some of the nuances, but it's still totally enjoyable. (Once you understand that there are strong pressures to marry in your early twenties, and that abstinence before and fidelity after marriage are highly prized, you're good to go.) The college Elizabeth (Kam Heskin) attends is never identified as Brigham Young University, but it's recognizably evident it was filmed there. I had a Physical Science class in the room where her English class is held, and the library scenes were unmistakable, as were the scenes filmed on West Center Street downtown, and at the hotel just west of the NuSkin building on Center Street. (There may have been one or two outdoor campus shots taken at UVSC down in Orem, as well.) When Elizabeth and Jack Wickham are walking back to Elizabeth's car after their dinner at the Indian Restaurant (where they were given the check by the Daniel himself (executive director and owner of the Bombay House where Jack & Elizabeth ate)), they're walking along the street right in front of the Utah County buildings there on Center Street and University Ave. It was a kick recognizing the various scenes and settings, right down to the tux shop where I rented tuxedoes for the groomsmen at my wedding, just two doors down from the bookshop where Elizabeth works.

As for the supposed religious slant of the film, the words "Mormon" and "LDS" are never mentioned, and there is very little reference to anything religious.
