It might not be the most faithful adaptation, but 1940's "Pride and Prejudice" pretty much set the bar for what would be consequent Austen adaptations.
The arrow scene featured in the picture above is practically recreated in "Emma", the older actors playing younger characters thing was done by Emma Thompson in Ang Lee's "Sense and Sensibility" and Joe Wright's masterful "Pride and Prejudice" from 2005 adapts the book by using almost the same turning points featured in this film.
Not so shabby for a minor classic huh?
