To commemorate today of its 10th year anniversary (UK's September release) of this amazing film here at the P&P Blog, I'm re-posting here some random P&P related links (many of them I've posted since I started blogging about P&P movie over 15 years ago...) for you to check out (if you haven't already done so) for the nostalgia!

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)
