I am a hugh Pride and Prejudice fan, and was excited to see this version restored. I have seen many of the different movie interpretations, and this by far is my favorite. It follows fairly close to the book (more than the other movies I have seen) and has a great chemistry between the main characters, Elizabeth and Darcy. If you're looking for a great, classic love story-this is it. I read a few negative reviews about the restoration quality, but I didn't notice any issues. It's better than the previous version's video quality. There are a few darker scenes where it can be harder to make out all the details (like around the edges of the screen), but I think that is more due to the original film. It's not going to be super awesome high definition, like a current day HD or Bluray movie, but I didn't have any issues watching it on my large screen LCD tv. There is also a lot of great bonus material included with the DVDs, mostly "making of" with commentary from some of the original actors. For a P&P nerd like me, it was a really great bonus. I was a little disappointed with the $.99 shipping option though. The delivery window was quite large, and it arrived almost at the end of the projected window. Should have sprung for the faster shipping option.
