Quote: Roger Ebert

This is the last paragraph from his 4 star review of the 2005 version of Jane Austen's "Pride and Prejudice".
The IMDB Facts And Figures- "Pride And Prejudice"
The Full Roger Ebert Review
"When Lizzie and Darcy finally accept each other in "Pride & Prejudice," I felt an almost unreasonable happiness. Why was that? I am impervious to romance in most films, seeing it as a manifestation of box office requirements. Here is it different, because Darcy and Elizabeth are good and decent people who would rather do the right thing than convenience themselves. Anyone who will sacrifice their own happiness for higher considerations deserves to be happy. When they realize that about each other their hearts leap, and, reader, so did mine."
