The second track is a Dolby Digital 2.0 commentary track.The dialogue is clear and concise and there are no audio sync problems.Keira Knightley is superb as the cheeky Elizabeth, to such an extent you forget it is her in the role and think only of the character on the screen.
First-time director Joe Wright is relatively easy to listen to and he is at least honest with elements of the film that do and dont work rather than just stating how amazing everybody is, but there is still precious little here to get excited about.
Running for this is a brief look at some of the social confines that many men and women found themselves stuck in when it came to finding true love in the late 18th century and how their families pretty much decided everything for them.
With all these young ladies on offer, would-be suitors come knocking regularly, so when wealthy Mr Bingley (Simon Woods) arrives in town with his sister (Kelly Reilly) and snooty, but even richer, friend Mr Darcy (Matthew Mac Fadyen), Mrs Bennet's marrying fervour reaches fever pitch.
Mr Bingley is smitten with Jane and it looks like a wedding could be on the cards.
The most obvious thing about the oft-quoted line above, which is incidentally the opening paragraph of Jane Austens novel Pride and Prejudice, is just how much the world of courting, dating and marriage has changed since the late 18th century.
These days a single man (or woman for that matter) in possession of a good fortune are most likely still living at home with mum and quite happy to date a few different people and spend their cash on themselves! This big-screen version of Jane Austens classic tale Pride and Prejudice was always going to be starting off on the back foot, unfavourably compared with the much-loved and hugely popular 1995 BBC mini-series of the same name starring the man all ladies would soon be swooning over, Colin Firth.In keeping with the times and along with almost every mother in similar circumstances, Mrs Bennet's sole aim in life is to find a suitable suitor for her daughters.Her brood includes the second oldest, the opinionated and incredibly strong-willed and intelligent Elizabeth (Keira Knightley) and the eldest Jane (Rosamund Pike), who is of marrying age and is the current target of Mrs Bennet's match-making skills.According to DVD Times, Pride and Prejudice is to be released in both a Deluxe 2 disc edition as well as HD DVD edition to come out on November 13, 2007 for both versions.Menu Animation & Audio Audio Commentary-Joe Wright (Director)Featurette-The Politics Of Dating Featurette-The Stately Homes Of Pride And Prejudice Featurette-The Bennets Featurette-The Life And Times Of Jane Austen Notes-Pride And Prejudice Family Tree Gallery-Galleries Of The 19th Century (3)Featurette-On Set Diaries Alternate Ending Notes-Pride And Prejudice Study Guide By Katy Marriner It is a truth universally acknowledged, that a single man in possession of a good fortune, must be in want of a wife.It looks authentic, contains plenty of stately locations and some beautiful production design and costuming.
