Open iTunes to preview, buy, and download this movie.
One of the greatest love stories of all time, Pride & Prejudice, comes to the screen in a glorious new adaptation starring Keira Knightley. When Elizabeth Bennett (Knightley) meets the handsome Mr. Darcy (Matthew MacFadyen), she believes he is the last man on earth she could ever marry. But as their lives become intertwined in an unexpected adventure, she finds herself captivated by the very person she swore to loathe for all eternity. Based on the beloved masterpiece by Jane Austen, it is the classic tale of love and misunderstanding that sparkles with romance, wit and emotional force. Critics are calling it "Exhilarating. A joy from start to finish" (Carina Chocano, Los Angeles Times).

Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: As historically authentic-looking as Pride & Prejudice is, it has far more invested in emotional authenticity -- you feel engaged every moment.
Fresh: Keira's cat-smile suggests such supernal all-knowingness that, with Austen's adapted dialogue (via Deborah Moggach) tripping off her tongue, she comes off as an eighteenth-century Maureen Dowd.
Fresh: For the uninitiated, I can't imagine a better introduction to this classic.
Rotten: It's a fitfully engaging romance, it's just not Pride and Prejudice.

This movie is actually one of the greatest movies ever and it is the best romance of all time. I have seen it at least 10 times and everytime I think about it I want to watch it again. I would definitely suggest purchasing it because you will want to keep on watching it again and again. This is not just another sappy love story. It greatly surpasses any of the other mildly entertaining romance/dramas and it isn't just another predictable and forgettable romantic comedy. Just hearing the music will make your heart melt and ache and (if you are a girl) you will want nothing more than to become Mrs. Darcy. BUY THIS MOVIE and be prepared to experience the quality of cinema which is very rare in the modern era.
Thank you, iTunes for finally having this movie available! Not only is Pride and Prejudice one of Austen's best books, but this is a beautiful film, with stunning scenery and costumes (not to mention the gorgeous soundtrack!). People complain that this version is not as good as the '95 mini-series with Colin Firth, but I think they are both equally wonderful adaptations for different reasons. I would highly recommend checking this one out, even if you are a Firth fan.
Pride and Prejudice
A TRUE LOVE STORY ...... Thank you iTumes! Great love story and well portrayed by the entire cast. It was so refreshing to see a true love story with no sex and violence. I fell in love with Mr. Darcy. If you are a romanticist, this is a must see movie.
