Honest Valentine’s Day Cards: The Pride and Prejudice Edition
A Mr. Darcy sketch I did while watching the 1995 BBC Pride and Prejudice miniseries last night.
JANE AUSTEN MODERN AU: Elizabeth Bennet
"Lizzie’s time was divided by two things - endless studying during the week and road trips anywhere outside the city at the weekends. Than a group of exchange students moved into her dorm, causing a little bit of distraction from the usual routine, especially since one of the boys seemed to swear solemnly to do everything possible to irritate her. Lizzie would love to ignore him and his snarky comments, but her sister Jane was very fond of the new companions and it was impossible to avoid them."
Pride and Prejudice: A Summary
That’s about right.

"My dear Jane!" exclaimed Elizabeth, "you are too good. Your sweetness and disinterestedness are really angelic. I do not know what to say to you. I feel as if I had never done you justice, or loved you as you deserve."
She had ventured only one glance at Darcy. He looked serious as usual; and she thought, more as he had been used to look in Hertfordshire, than as she had seen him at Pemberley. But, perhaps he could not in her mother’s presence be what he was before her uncle and aunt. It was a painful, but not an improbable, conjecture.
"“I believe that when people do period films they are reliant on paintings from the period, because there is no photography. But in a painting, everything is formally composed; it’s not real life. Then they do wide shots to show off the period detail of the sets. I think that the detail is in the small things, like crumbs on a table, or flowers in a vase. I wanted to shoot the details, the visual details of living.”
(Joe Wright, Director)
“And then the music that starts at the window you’ll recognized as being the music that we first hear when we enter Longbourn at the very, very beginning of the film. And the reason why I used the same piece of music is because it would remind her of home. That finding the person you’re supposed to be with is like coming home. And that, even though this house is so completely different from her house, it’s the same spirit, the same music moves there.” - Joe Wright, Director
