This is the definitive Pride and Prejudice and the most successful TV period drama ever. Starring Colin Firth, Jennifer Ehle and a fabulous supporting cast, this BBC/A&E co-production pulsates with energy as lively, witty Elizabeth Bennet charms smouldering, haughty Darcy against a backdrop of a picture postcard countryside, small-town assembly rooms and stately English homes.
In Eastern Texas during a 1940s summer, working class teenager Jack falls in love with Ginny, the daughter of the town's banker. As the summer comes to a close, Jack and Ginny elope to Louisiana, where 17-year-olds can marry without parental consent. When Ginny learns that she's pregnant, and the town doctor relays some bad news, the couple's dreams seem to drift farther away from attainability.
Jane Austen's classic is transplanted to modern-day. While her college roommates search for love, aspiring writer Elizabeth Bennet focuses on her career but constantly finds herself fighting haughty businessman Will Darcy.
