Jane Austen's classic is transplanted to modern-day Utah. While her college roommates search for love, aspiring writer Elizabeth Bennet focuses on her career but constantly finds herself fighting haughty businessman Will Darcy.
Contemporary films set in the days when chivalry and romance were still alive and kicking. Your belching, X-Box obsessed boyfriend will only look that much worse after you observe gentlemen of ages past in such romantic greats as 'A Royal Affair', 'Atonement', and 'W.E.'!
Once you go Brit, you never quit; enjoy this collection of charming British leads, and they sweep a variety of unhappy middle-aged women off their feet and into their thin, pale, but nevertheless appealing arms. Go classic with 'Impromptu' or place yourself squarely in the modern age with 'Bridget Jones'.
Love Jane Austen, but seen all the direct adaptations?
These movies take her stories and characters right into the modern day. Think 'Romeo + Juliet', but Austen instead of Shakespeare, and far less Hawaiin shirts.
Romantic gentlemen are waiting around every corner to sweep ladies off their feet (all while managing not to expose their ankles) in this collection of the best British romance flicks set in bygone eras, but made post the year 2000. Find your Mr. Darcy!
For all you Mr. Darcy lovers everywhere, these are the best movies with a sweet Austen-y center. Whether you're looking for a faithful period adaptation like the 1995 version of 'Sense and Sensibility', or a modern reboot, like 'The Jane Austen Book Club', we've got you covered. Best enjoyed with a glass of merlot and a deep sense of romantic discontent!
