Bride and Prejudice

This is an Indian-based movie inspired by Pride and Prejudice. A family has four beautiful daughters and their mother is desperate for them to get husbands. An American, an Indian living in America, and an Indian living in England are all presented at some time or another, but things don't always turn out the way they're expected. There's lots of beautiful dancers, dancing, and clothing in this movie, but I thought the best actress was Nadira Babbar, who played the mother. She's a large woman who moved gracefully and really expressed her feelings.

You don't need to have read or watched Pride and Prejudice to enjoy this movie; it's a visual delight.
