Six Years ago today (November 23, 2005), during the Thanksgiving week here in the U.S., the 6-time BAFTA (including a WIN for director Joe Wright, which he won the Carl Foreman Award for the Most Promising Newcomer and a Best Supporting Actress nomination for Brenda Blethyn), 2-time Golden Globes (including Best Actress nomination for Keira Knightley), and 4-time Oscar nominated film (including Best Actress in a Leading Role nomination for Keira Knightley) Pride & Prejudice starring Keira Knightley and Matthew Macfadyen expanded its release in U.S. theaters nationwide release (after its select cities debut early November 11th, which it debuted at #10 in limited release of 215 screens in a few select cities) with a strong $2.8+ million on its first opening weekend, and according to Box Office Mojo (with an average of $13,325).

To celebrate its 6th year anniversary (US November wide release) of this unforgettable and amazing film here at the P&P Blog, I thought I'd make this post (again for the 3rd time, but edited for the US wide release anniversary) all about it here today, as this is worth reposting here (multiple times) to look back on this amazing and brilliant film and its continued successes, 6 years later and for many years to come.
 
Also, I am reposting here all the P&P related links (I have posted previously 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)
