PRIDE and PREJUDICE and SENSE and SENSIBILITY BY Jane Austin

PRIDE and PREJUDICE

PRIDE and PREJUDICE

Jane Austin's novels and hence the movies made from her writings promote world-wide Christian viewpoint of virtue, grace and manners. While sometimes poking justified fun at some church ministers who give long boring sermons, Jane Austin obviously took the Christian religion seriously and believed in its moral value system.

This version of Pride and Prejudice has taken its place as the greatest television production of all time. The landmark adaptation from A&E and the BBC captured the hearts of millions by seamlessly translating the wit, romance and intelligence of Jane Austin's classic novel to the screen.

With a masterful script, deft direction, and star-making performances from Colin FIrth and Jennifer Ehle, Pride and Prejudice transports viewers to Georgian England, where affairs of the heart are an exquisite game, and marriage the ultimate prize. But Elizabeth Bennet - spirited, independent, and one of five unmarried sisters - is determined to play by her own rules and wed for love, not money or privilege. Will her romantic sparring with the mysterious and arrogant Darcy end in misfortune - or will love's true nature prevail?

Now beautifully remastered for the ultimate in picture and sound quality, relive the timeless classic Pride and Prejudice on 2 DVDs.
