Pride & Prejudice | 2005 | PG | - 3.1.1

In this adaptation of the Jane Austen novel Keira Knightley stars as Elizabeth Bennet, the second eldest daughter of an 18th century British family. Her mother is desperate to marry off her five daughters before they are completely destitute. But Elizabeth is a strong-willed young woman and will not accept just anyone's proposal; she's instead holding out for true love, and she finds it most unexpectedly with the initially unlikable Mr. Darcy (Matthew MacFadyen). Also with Rosamund Pike, Jena Malone, Donald Sutherland and Judi Dench. Directed by Joe Wright. [2:07]

SEX/NUDITY 3 - We see large paintings of nude men and women (bare breasts, bare buttocks, bare chests and genitals are visible) in a few scenes.
 Young women dress and we see them being laced into corsets (some cleavage and bare shoulders are revealed). Women wear low-cut dresses that reveal varying amounts of cleavage throughout the movie.
 A woman kisses a man's hand and they hug. A man and a woman argue, and then they come close to kissing each other but do not.
 Two girls (about 16 years old) are very flirtatious and aggressive with their intentions toward men, throughout the movie.
 A man and his wife lie in bed together. Men and women dance together at balls, and a young woman dances with a man.
 A priest utters the word "intercourse" in his sermon and people in the audience appear alarmed and uncomfortable. A man talks about being able to admire two women's figures better from a distance.
 We see a very large pig with very large testicles walk through a courtyard.

CAVEATS

Be aware that while we do our best to avoid spoilers it is impossible to disguise all details and some may reveal crucial plot elements.

We've gone through several editorial changes since we started covering films in 1992 and older reviews are not as complete & accurate as recent ones; we plan to revisit and correct older reviews as resources and time permits.

Our ratings and reviews are based on the theatrically-released versions of films; on video there are often Unrated, Special, Director's Cut or Extended versions, (usually accurately labelled but sometimes mislabeled) released that contain additional content, which we did not review.
