Pride and Prejudice - Dario Marianelli
This was my favorite soundtrack of 2005. Although Marianelli was criticized for not creating a stronger theme and possibly bordering too closely on other works, it still captured the overall emotion of the film. The movie is a light Jane Austen romance; it is not some overwhelming and depressing drama. My favorite track was most definitely "Meryton Hall," which perfectly captured the essence of an old country dance. Overall, I think Marianelli did can excellent job, and the performances by Jean-Yves Thibaudet are just gorgeous.
