We Ranked 20 Jane Austen Adaptations From Best To Worst

2. Tie: 'Pride & Prejudice' (2005)
Adapted from: Pride and Prejudice

Starring: Keira Knightley and Matthew Macfadyen


We realize this Pride & Prejudice is rather controversial in the Austen-verse, but simply put, the film is stunning. With a heartfelt score and dazzling cinematography, the film is pure, unadulterated romance.

True, Joe Wright's Pride & Prejudice can be a little heavy-handed (here's looking at you, "Mrs. Darcy" alternative ending), but Keira Knightley dolls out a fiery interpretation of our beloved heroine.
