Austen had a way of developing her characters (especially matriarchal figures) that is humorous for one's ability to relate to such. Even knowing where things will ultimately head, one "enjoys the ride" to the conclusion. Hugh Laurie, Emma Thompson, and Hugh Grant shine in this understated, controlled version of a true literary classic.
I love all Jane Austen stories. This film is enjoyable, even though Emma Thompson was at least a decade too old to play this lead role. And Hugh Grant? Ugh! The rest of the cast -- especially Kate Winslet -- were excellent which makes it well worth owning.
A movie I've always loved, classic and great to watch with the girls and a big bowl of popcorn.

Prompt delivery, perfect condition. Thanks, Overstock! This movie is based on a Jane Austen novel, the screenplay is by the very talented Emma Thompson, the cast is all-star, and the director is Ang Lee; there's no way this movie wouldn't be great. With Alan Rickman as Colonel Brandon--well, he's the icing on the cake.
I loved the movie! especially because it was in many different languages and i can share it with people who don't speak english like my mother. The movie was in very good condition and i am considering buying more movies from overstock.
