To celebrate its 5th year anniversary (US November wide release) of this amazing film here at the P&P Blog, I thought I'd make this post (again, but edited for the US wide release anniversary) all about it here today, as this is worth reposting here to look back on this awesome and brilliant film and its continued successes, 5 years later.
Also, I am posting here all the P&P related links (I have posted since I started blogging about P&P movie over 3 years ago...) for you to check out (if you haven't already done so)

But first, check out the following...

When Elizabeth Bennet (Keira Knightley) meets the handsome Mr. Darcy (Matthew Macfadyen), she believes he is the last man on earth she could 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)
