Film-maker JOE WRIGHT shot two different endings for PRIDE AND PREJUDICE - one for the US and one for Britain.

While UK viewers see Donald Sutherland's character MR BENNET smile contentedly in the final scene, American audiences will enjoy a passionate embrace between stars Keira Knightley and MATTHEW MacFAYDEN when it opens this weekend (12/13NOV05).

Wright explains, "Americans like a bit more sugar in their champagne."
