Product Description

Keira Knightley double bill. In 'Pride and Prejudice' (2005), the adaptation of the classic novel by Jane Austen, when wealthy Mr Bingley (Simon Woods) and his friend, the dashing Mr Darcy (Matthew MacFadyen) arrive in a small Hertfordshire town, Mrs Bennett (Brenda Blethyn) sees it as the perfect opportunity to marry off her eligible daughters. But when Elizabeth Bennett (Knightley) meets Mr Darcy, their equally headstrong natures get in the way of true love. In 'Atonement' (2007), on the hottest day of the summer of 1935, thirteen-year-old Briony Tallis (Saoirse Ronan) sees her older sister Cecilia (Knightley) strip off her clothes and plunge into the fountain in the garden of their country house. Watching Cecilia is their housekeeper's son Robbie Turner (James McAvoy), a childhood friend who, along with Briony's sister, has recently graduated from Cambridge. By the end of that day the lives of all three have been changed forever. Robbie and Cecilia have crossed a boundary they had never before dared to approach and have become victims of the younger girl's scheming imagination - and Briony has committed a dreadful crime, the guilt for which will colour her entire life. Romola Garai and Vanessa Redgrave co-star as Briony as she grows older.

Synopsis

Keira Knightley stars in two faithful litery adaptations. Features Atonement, based on the Ian McEwan novel, and Jane Austen's Pride and Prejudice.Set on a sultry summer day in 1935, Atonement begins as an upper-class British family prepares for a dinner party at their country estate. The participants include Briony Tallis, her older sister Cecilia, Robbie Turner, who carries a torch for Cecilia; and various visitors and family members. A series of misperceptions, fuelled by the summer heat and Briony's childish hurts and fevered imagination, lead to a dramatic false accusation that lands Robbie in jail. We meet all three characters five years later in the thick of World War II, as foot soldier Robbie prepares for the Dunkirk evacuation and the two estranged sisters train as nurses in London.Pride and Prejudice follows the five Bennet sisters as they deal with suitors and love, as their mother desperately schemes to marry them off advantageously.

Excellent film collection.
I'm one of the few females who actually likes Kiera Knightley & in both these films she again performs beautifully, and the cast to go are incredible.
Although many prefer the original BBC adaptation Pride & Prejudice here is snappier without loosing too much of it's origin. Advise that you don't watch the US ending as it really is completely awful and out of the Austen way, they love cheese! Particularly love the way Wright has directed the scenes to give a feel of life back in the times of Austen, gives it a very raw & real feel.

Having heard the spoken version of Atonement before reading it, and then hearing there was to be a film with Knightley & McAvoy, they come together beautifully, but be warned if you haven't seen this film before there will be tears. A beautiful but sad story bought to life in a great film. Particularly love the scene by the fountain & Kiera's green dress!

I enjoyed these two films greatly. In my opinion Joe Wright is really a master in what he does. Everytime you watch the movies there's something new you discover. A lot of thought into both of them. All in all I think he catches the spirit very well and at the same time stays very true to the books. A great experience at a great price. What I enjoyed very much as well is that in oth DVDs the Director's commentary is included and he explains a lot of the reasons he had for filming things a specific way and tells a few anecdotes as well.

Joe Wright's two best films at a bargain price. Both films are excellent and at times visually stunning. The man has talent without doubt and a refreshing modesty ( if you listen to his voiceovers ). He seemes to excel in the period drama arena. Some might argue that his films are clasics for people with short attention spans and maybe that is the case but the guy has great visual skill that hark back to an era where time and money were available for such things ( Im thinking Kubrick and Lean here ) but now with limited budgets it is a real acheivement to make me think "How did he do that" or "that was beautiful". The dance/ball scene in Pride and Prejudice and the long tracking shot on the beach in Atonement are both stunning pieces of cinema. Oh, and the music is pretty damn good in both films too.

Keira Knightley is brilliant in both movies and if you like Jane Austens work then it is worth the moneý. Atonement is even better performed, however sag'd the story actually is.
