Buy it... if you enjoy the works of Beethoven and could appreciate their heavy influence on a score for a Jane Austen novel adaptation.

Avoid it... if you've heard countless interpretations and variations on Beethoven and don't need to hear another one in the same old Austen formula.

Marianelli
Marianelli
Pride & Prejudice: (Dario Marianelli) As both time and technology continue to barrel forward, it seems to take more and more talent to do justice to the writings of Jane Austen in their screen adaptations. With her stories already made for the big screen in most cases, it's even more difficult to both capture the spirit of Austen's novels and do so in a fashion that doesn't step on the feet of previous adaptations while performing that delicate dance. In the case of Pride & Prejudice, it's hard not to forget the BBC adaptation from as recently as the 1990's, not to mention the renaissance of Austen's work that hit the big screens with much critical success at about the same time. The newest adaptation by Joe Wright, casting an unexpected group of youth in the lead roles and peppering bit roles with established actors, has been met with considerable critical and popular praise, infusing the story with fresh blood while maintaining all the necessary authenticity required of the story. In the age of institutional marriage in 18th Century England, Pride & Prejudice is a standard Austen tale of a family in the process of marrying off all its daughters to the best suitors and revolving around one particular daughter who at first refuses (just like her suitor) to fall in love but, of course, inevitably does so. A great deal of modern readers and moviegoers find Austen tales to be intolerable, partly because they are so consistent and partly because they exist in a far more rigid and less tolerant age of society. One of the consistencies that plagues the adaptations of Austen novels on screen is the stereotypical music that is often heard throughout their lengths, with the lush, sensitive works of Patrick Doyle, Rachel Portman, George Fenton, or (non-Brit) Richard Robbins often borrowing heavily from each other in their British sensibilities. One of the most surprising assignments of 2005 has been Italian Dario Marianelli's attachment to this newest version of Pride & Prejudice.
