A Modern Pride and Prejudice (2011)

"It is a truth universally acknowledged, that a single man in possession of a good fortune, must be in want of a wife and with that knowledge a mother of five single girls will do anything in her power to get that man to marry one of them."

Pride and Prejudice follows Elizabeth (Maia Petee) and her oldest sister Jane Bennet (Christina LaFon) through trial and error of first impressions, timeless proposals, mistaken opinions and true love.

When Jane meets the new eligible bachelor Mr. Bingley (Mark Mook), she falls head over heels until he suddenly leaves town unexpectedly with his friend Mr. Darcy (Caleb Grusing).

While Elizabeth consults her sister she finds herself intertwined in the reasons behind Mr. Bingley's departure, a new found friend Mr. Wickham (James Hawthorn), prejudices and possibilities of finding love herself."

The first Impressions are not always lasting ones.

Another adaption of the great authoress Jane Austen hit the screens... soon. I haven't seen it myself nor did I meet anyone who had or read any reviews on the net.

As I said before, I love anything Jane Austen, so I can't wait to watch this adaption and see how well the director worked with the story.

The photos are very cute and the actor with the cute dimples must be Mr. Darcy. I don't expect anything spectacular, the contemporary adaptions are usually not well done, but still, it's Austen.
