What is the BEST movie version to watch of Pride and Prejudice? The one with Keira Knightly. The 2005 film covers the plot, moves fast, has a great cast, it’s in color, you can stream it and the DVD is cheap. In the novel Elizabeth Bennet is not as pretty as Keira and she doesn’t dance with Mr. Darcy at the ball. Other than a few minor details this movie version follows the book. Steer clear from Pride and Prejudice and ZOMBIES!
