The outspoken Elizabeth Bennet faces mounting pressure from her status-conscious mother to secure a suitable marriage. But is marriage suitable for a woman of Elizabeth’s intelligence and independence? Especially when the irritating, aloof, self-involved, tall, vaguely handsome, mildly amusing, and impossibly aristocratic Mr. Darcy keeps popping up at every turn! Literature’s greatest tale of latent love has never felt so theatrical.

See it if you're a Janeite (best to re-read/watch movie before). Ingenious take on classic..bordering farcical.
Don't see it if you don't like to mess with tradition. Act 1 is perfection. Wheels fall off a bit in Act 2. KH (Jane) overacts and takes into broad skit.
