PG | | Drama, Romance
Sparks fly when spirited Elizabeth Bennet meets single, rich, and proud Mr. Darcy. But Mr. Darcy reluctantly finds himself falling in love with a woman beneath his class. Can each overcome their own pride and prejudice?
At the beginning of the movie, Elizabeth is shown reading a novel titled "First Impressions" - this was Jane Austen's original title of her novel before she altered it to "Pride and Prejudice". Additionally, the text of the visible pages is readable when paused; it is the last chapter of "Pride and Prejudice", with names changed.
At the beginning of the film, the Sun is on one side of the house, Lizzie walks from the rear to towards the front of the house, the camera enters a doorway to show Mary playing inside Longbourn, the Sun is low in the sky from the other side of the house. The scene has been filmed as a continuous shot but it is impossible for the Sun to have moved. In the commentary the director explains that the scene was cut as Lizzie passes behind some laundry - not "to indicate a passing of time" - but because he wanted to use the Sun from both sides of the house. He hoped the audience would "not notice the two Suns". It is a goof but it was intentionally done to make filming easier.

US version has a different ending: after Mr. Bennet and Elizabeth's conversation, a scene follows where Darcy and "Mrs. Darcy" are at Pemberly talking about their happiness.
