7 Movies and TV Series Similar to 'Pride and Prejudice'

Updated on November 7, 2017

I love the movie adaptation of Pride and Prejudice with Keira Knightley and Matthew Macfadyen, and also the mini-series with Colin Firth. If you are a Jane Austen fan, here are some other movies and TV series for you that are just like Pride and Prejudice.

1. Austenland (2013)

Austenland is based on the novel by Shannon Hale. It is about a woman, Jane Haynes, who is obsessed with Mr. Darcy in Pride and Prejudice.This obsession gets in the way of her love life; She compares all men to Mr. Darcy (as acted by Colin Firth in the BBC miniseries). She uses up all her savings and travels to Austenland, a theme park, to find her Darcy and meet other Austen fans.

2. Death Comes to Pemberley (2013)

The Continuing Story of Darcy and Elizabeth

This mini series consists of three episodes. It follows six years after the events in Pride and Prejudice. Mr. Darcy and Miss Elizabeth Bennet are married and years later they are having a family at Pemberley. These episodes involve a great murder mystery.

The cast consists of Matthew Rhys, Anna Maxwell Martin, Jenna Coleman, Matthew Goode, Trevor Eve, Alexandra Moen, Tom Ward, Eleanor Tomlinson, Rebecca Front, and James Fleet.

3. The Paradise (2013-2014)

The Paradise is a wonderful, extraordinary two-season TV series with a unique love story. A humble young girl falls in love with the thrilling glamours of the modern world. Denise Lovett comes from a very small town called Peebles in Scotland. She takes a job at the Paradise, which is the name of a British department store. Her uncle Edmund is a struggling dressmaker with his own shop, right across the street from the Paradise. As Denise finds her way as a meek shopgirl, she must maneuver her way through many difficult tasks. These include struggles with her colleagues, affairs, and relationships. When the overzealous owner, John Moray, sees marvelous talents in Denise, he knows she can do great things for the Paradise. This series is filled with romance, drama, and much more.


4. Lost in Austen (2008)

This is a TV mini series, not a movie. Amanda, a young woman in London, is not pleased with her life. To escape from her mundane life, she reads the book Pride and Prejudice because she longs for romance. One night she gets transferred into Elizabeth Bennett's times and Elizabeth Bennett comes into this young woman's world. As the book's events unfold, she sees things do not go according to the book. There are a lot of twists and turns. Amanda does more damage than help. This is an awesome series that is very funny and witty.

5. Becoming Jane

If you are a fan of Pride and Prejudice, you will enjoy this movie. It is about the life of young Jane Austen, the British novelist. She is a twenty-year-old emerging writer who has developed views different from what society expects. She wants to marry for love, but her parents are searching for a wealthy husband to safeguard their daughter's future social standing and consider a proposal from Mr. Wisely. But when Jane meets Mr. Lefroy, she feels an instant connection and begins a romance with this Irishman. This is the man she claims to love. She did not feel this way towards Mr. Wisely. This is a very heartwarming, enjoyable movie with lots of lessons in romance and choosing our life partner.

This film stars Anne Hathaway, James McAvoy, and Julie Walters.

6. Bride and Prejudice (2004)

This is the Indian version of Pride and Prejudice and my absolute favorite. Aishwarya Rai Bachan stars in this with Naveen Andrews. It is about Mrs. Bakshi who is set on finding appropriate husbands for her four daughters. When the wealthy men, Balraj and Mr. Darcy, come to an Indian Village and visit at their friend's wedding, things begin to happen. It is extremely funny and romantic with lots of music, dancing and color. Watch as an Indian girl from a different culture and class has to deal with a pompous, rich American man; lots of differences come to the surface.

7. Pride and Prejudice (2003)

This is a modern version of Pride and Prejudice. Elizabeth is a smart, intelligent college student and her mind is on her career as a writer. She works at the local bookstore. Instead of having four sisters as in the original version, she has four roommates, Lydia, Kitty, Mary and Jane, in search of romance and love. Her life is about to change. She is not focused on marriage until graduation. But Elizabeth attracts the wrong guys like Jack Wickham, a playboy. Then she meets Darcy, the businessman. This is a clean romantic comedy that you will enjoy.
