More Great Movies Like Pride and Prejudice

Those book classics that gets adapted into movies are the ones that have that timeless appeal that makes their message still  relevant in our modern times.

So read one for more movies like Pride and Prejudice.



Pride and Prejudice

For people who love Jane Austen's classic novels I'm going to suggest two versions of Pride and Prejudice.

The first is the more accessible 2005 film version that is a looser adaptation of the original novel. The setting changed slightly from the early 19th century to the around circa 1790, in which Elizabeth Bennet is played by the spirited Ms Keira Knightley.

For the Jane Austen fan who prefers a purer translation of the book to the screen, I will recommend the mini-series version of Pride and Prejudice that packs more of the plot elements and nuances that we are love. With a total running time of 6 hours be prepared for your very own Pride and Prejudice film marathon.

Sense and Sensibilities

Watch a youthful Kate Winslet, the always magnificent Emma Thompson and the dashing Hugh Grant in this witty film adaptation of Sense and Sensibilities.

Watch for Hugh Grant in one of his best performance ever and watch the sparks fly in this timeless romance comedy.

If I remember correctly this movie had almost no background music. Which is actually pure genius in my opinion because it made me focus on the subtle nuances of the acting and the timeless dialogue.

Emma

The dazzling Gwyneth Paltrow stars in Emma a classic from the pen of Jane Austen with an timeless and almost modern comedic feel. 

If you simply cannot get enough of movies like Pride and Prejudice then why not go get the mini-series version of Emma that let the original story unfold in its measured pace and splendor.
