    At Darcy's first proposal scene, when they've finished their spat, and Darcy leans in a bit - wanting to kiss her... and he sees that she's also leaning in too, but still stops; apologises, and then backs away. It speaks loudly about Darcy's character and morals. Lizzy made it very clear seconds before that she didn't want him, and instead of doing what he wanted to do anyway (like many rom films), Darcy showed that he listened to her, took what she said seriously and respected her - and her decisions. Honestly, one of my favourite moments!

      According to IMDB, the almost kiss was something that came up naturally during the first screen tests with Macfadyen, and it only worked so well because their chemistry was great. So they decided to keep it in (thankfully)

    I love in the end when she replies “well then, your hands are cold” is because her usual wit and sarcasm have been stripped from her and for once she’s actually speechless and has no retort to his honest expression of humility and love.

      @pink I sat on it. For several hours actually, and only a smidge uncomfortable. I grant you physical touch was less accepted then. I give you her growth and being emotionally bare in the moment she gave an honest, caring , loving gesture, and for the first time at a loss for words. But to put myself in Mr Darcy's place, is a gesture all it is? Is it just an act from a feeling of obligation? I would want to know she knows and wants the same thing. If we are to speak of 'back then' , for the most part a man like Darcy would have got the girl he wanted and if she only did it as a gesture or obligation he would be fine with it. If she had an issue, then she would have to deal with it like Mr Collins and his wife. But this is not the case. Add to it what we know of Elizabeth, as Lady Catherine de Bourgh said, "you give your opinion very decidedly for so young a person." - Give it. No grand speech, just a yes, and then the loving gesture.

      @T.B. Creek This would be a reason to dislike this scene IF we weren't talking about Lizzie Bennet and her growth since the first proposal. This scene is showing exactly that. She's striped away from all her pride and prejudice, her sarcastic comments, and denying of her own feelings for Mr. Darcy. She's actually communicating the most honest answer she could give by PHYSICAL TOUCH!! which was a big deal back then. Sit on that for a minute and then get back to me.

      That’s not how I took it at all. She was constantly standoffish because of her insecurity and pride from his original insult she overheard. Even when her feelings intensified for him she couldn’t trust him (for good reason). By the time he finally came not once to her with vulnerability, but twice with now the knowledge of what he had done for her, her making contact with him finally cemented her feelings for him in just one touch. Something she kept from him (understandably in the beginning) and often flat out 🙅‍♀️ denied. One touch with a side of concern was enough.

      Personally I would have rather had a "yes" and then what we see here. When I saw this scene I was so put off by it. My thought was she was not willing to accept responsibility. She wants the out of any future troubles by being able to say she did not want the relationship having already rejected him. His asking again without any clear insult or reason for objection, she can always say accepting his offer was the proper and expected thing to do. Say yes Lizzy!

    I disagree that it's a very "white" story. I'm African, and I identify with it very intensely. It's very human, and Jane Austen does a great job of telling a universally relatable story.

    My favorite thing about the "long shot" of Darcy with the swelling piano, is that he is WALKING to her - he hears what his aunt did to Elizabeth, but instead of rushing off in a carriage or on his fastest horse and galloping to her like a prince ready to sweep her off her feet, he WALKS!!! He comes in on HER level, the girl who claims to love walking (when half the time she walks because she has to), he decides to enter the scene with such a simple but powerful gesture of love, on FOOT. He's also not all dressed up and high collared like usual, he wears a simple shirt and trousers, very casual, as if to say "I'm here as the man you have made me into". Beautiful.

      "He comes in on HER level, the girl who claims to love walking (when half the time she walks because she has to), he decides to enter the scene with such a simple but powerful gesture of love, on FOOT."
      Lizzie isn't poor just because Darcy is ultra rich.
      "He's also not all dressed up and high collared like usual, he wears a simple shirt and trousers, very casual, as if to say "I'm here as the man you have made me into". Beautiful."
      With the standards of that particular era he's dressed as the equivalent of someone walking around in your garden in pjs. I don't quite see the allure of this kind of sappy pretence at romance but apparently a lot of people like it.

      @william m. kydde I LOVE the classic. The book first, then the BBC version from the 80s, then the Colin Firth version. and I also love this one. I connect with it emotionally very well. It isn't about teaching to me, because I "know" the stuff and was a literature major in college. It's just... I LIKE this one better. That's what art is - a way of connecting with the emotions. So I don't think it's bad to have so many versions of this because emotionally people connect with whichever version they love most.

    I love this movie, but one thing I think it failed to really convey from the book is when Elizabeth visits Darcy's grand manor with her aunt and uncle, it wasn't the wealth and splendor that contributed to her change of heart. It was the way his housekeeper spoke about him, and described how kind he was to all his servants and tenants.

      @Kimberly Sparkles Actually, that depends. Pride and Prejudice was written in the late 18th century and, I believe, finally published in the early 19th.
      Both the BBC series and the film are quite true to a time period, they just chose different ones, both fitting.
      There's an entire reaction video about the costumes and set of the movie and their historical accuracy, and I believe it ranked quite highly in accuracy for the late 18th century.

      It’s naive to think she’s not swayed by the grandeur of Pemberly. Love in that time was in terms of economics. It’s a very modern interpretation to think she wasn’t impressed by his wealth.

    Movie trivia: the scene in the rain was written FOR them. Kiera Knightley, uncommonly for Hollywood, was cast first, as so did the casting reads with the Darcy auditionees. Matthew comes in, and reads, and they do the scene almost exactly like this - even though it wasn't written that way. They get closer and closer, and even do that small lean in for the kiss at the end before realising and pulling away, and Joe Wright saw it and was like 'THAT'S IT'. And then adapted the scene from the original Collins' house (where it's set in the book) to be outside, in the rain, with the thunder, to punctuate the pure drama and chemistry the two actors created

    One of the things that makes Darcy such a good romantic character is that when Lizzie rejects him, he leaves it. He does not push her to change her mind or tell her why she is wrong to reject him. He writes to her to correct some inaccurate facts about him, but he clearly states the intent of his letter is not to renew his intentions towards her. Jane Austen knew where it was at.

His reactions as he's seeing the parallels between his interference between Jane and Bingley and the rejection he's just gotten from Elizabeth is a masterwork of acting. Understanding that the same shyness that Jane was exhibiting is how he reacted to Elizabeth in the beginning and his interference is what has prevented his own engagement is heartbreaking to watch.

    They mentioned at the beginning of the movie, the silhouettes of Darcy and party in the dark, facing all this noise and life. What they didn't connect, was the shot when Lizzy accepted Darcy and they touch foreheads. They are in silhouettes together, but lit and full of life! They are finally on the same level of light and esteem. *I also think they should have addressed Lizzy's growth from the Wickham situation, where she learned the truth and adjusted her prejudice to see both Wickham and Darcy for who they really are.* This is also why when they are in the meadow, they have both equally grown for the better to meet and move forward on equal ground.
    **Also, when they each reveal their feelings for each other in a raw nature, they are in fact in nature itself in a raw form. The Gazebo was seemingly overtaken by nature, and they were drenched in rain. And in this, they are in a meadow covered in fog and sunlight. It's an opposite, showing where they are now from where they were. And each have touches of water, a connecting medium, in incense and more gentle circumstances.
    Joe Wright, the actors, cinematographers, composers, everyone who worked on this movie made perfectly, because they weren't aiming for perfection. They made it real.

      This was a choice made to modernize Darcy. It had to work for the movie due to its short run time. In the novel, Darcy is prideful. He looks down on the people at the gathering and several of their habits. He is really critical of Jane and her habits. To a much further extent. But she is too. Sometimes she purposefully offends him.

      In the novel and the BBC version he says to Lizzie, when she and his cousin are making fun of him for not dancing at the public ball, he says he is not as comfortable conversing with strangers as he would like to be. Lizzie just tells him he would be better if he practiced more. Which is why when later he meets her aunt and uncle he is really friendly- because he has been practicing- and Lizzie is shocked. He also thinks his pride is checked because he says that pride will always be under regulation when there is superiority of mind- which is a flawed and interesting argument because if you think your mind is superior then how will you check your pride?

    The BBC version is truest to the book's tale of how wrong Lizzie gets it all. At one point she recognizes that when she is enlightened about the true characters of both Wickham and Darcy, that she hardly knew herself. She has been so certain; so wrong! And interestingly, Austen gives the truest observations to the person most often dismissed as the most ridiculous of the P & P characters: Mary! Austen was a freaking genius.

I think though that Jane Austen wanted to convey that Mary was a bit blind to recognise what her talents and flaws were and blind to other people's judgement as well..in a sense Mary was like her little sisters in that she tries to get attention, but by different means (intelectually, talent etc.)...In other words, she is still plagued by attention seeking behaviour. At least that's what I understood. But I don't condemn Mary...everyone has needs. It's just that Mary also lacked the social awareness of her older sisters that knew what was appropriate in society and what was not. Mary was stuck in between sisters - the middle child. Jane Austen was brilliant...

      @MsJubjubbird Still, I see what we're supposed to think of as Mary being "silly" as her trying to be good at something and get some positive attention.
      But it never worked for her since even her parents and her sisters had already decided to look down on her no matter what she did.
      Perhaps you can say that she should have just calmed down and not tried so hard, but I know I made similar mistakes when I was younger.
      It is hard for some of us to be well-liked when we don't have the proper social skills to know when to stop.

      @Furienna it's not that she's not pretty, though it would help her in the marriage market- though she isn't interested in marriage. Charlotte is plain but is not ridiculed. Caroline is plain but it is her attitude not her looks that are ridiculed. Austen was very critical of revering people only for their looks. It's that Mary takes herself way too seriously to the point where she makes a fool of herself- because she is not the star she thinks she is. She's almost a warning about what a severe lack of insight into one's faults can result in. Therefore Elizabeth should take care.

      @MsJubjubbird The problem is that everyone in the story is prejudiced against Mary because she's not pretty and popular like her sisters are.
      So nobody is interested in what she says or what she feels since she's the least likely to get married and thus is just an inconvenient burden to her family.
      That is why Austen portrayed Mary so negatively and not because she really did something wrong.
      And if the Bennets had lived in a Catholic country, they would have sent Mary to a convent and allowed her to stop worrying about her position in life.
      But in the very Protestant society of Regency England, they had no room for a daughter who preferred to read books and discuss religion over flirting and dancing.
      She could have been a clergyman like Mr Collins if she had been a man, but it was of course not an option for a woman back then.
      So I must find her situation really sad...

      @Ptolémée Sélénion Darcy's mother is the daughter of an Earl, and Elizabeths mother is the daughter of a merchant, which means Darcy has more impressive relatives than Elizabeth, but society at that time cared a lot more about who your FATHER was, and both of their fathers were members of the GENTRY, which makes them equals in regards to "breeding". Also, if you think breeding actually matters, then you missed the whole point of the story...

    I think that Macfadyen was right about Darcy and so that's why he was able to play him so well. Macfadyen said that much of Darcy's apparent pride and coldness was simply shyness. A shy but gorgeous man who is forced into prominence by his family's wealth which he now must be responsible for is not an easy role in movies or in real life. Darcy had some prejudice that had been drummed into him by his family, but it doesn't seem that was really his choice. The change in the movie came when both characters decided to throw off the expectations and prejudice of their society and find happiness for themselves. The change was a gradual one that came in stages throughout the movie so that everyone could watch it happening.

      Wow I didn't know the actor said those - definitely nailed it. There's something I want to add to your comment though, I don't think Darcy's family injected any prejudice into him. I don't remember ever getting any negative impression of his family, I feel like they were really gentle and well-bred, so naturally Darcy must've been brought up the same way. Those good manners wouldn't allow them to sow prejudice in their son. But! Maybe after losing his parents, as a shy and gentle young man with people like Wickham in his circle, Darcy might've learned to be cautious, cynical, even jaded. And later with characters like Ms. Bingley around him, I imagine he would've been reminded often to look out for himself (because he was such a catch) and be more rational, practical, materialistic etc.
      I don't know if anyone will care but I really love talking about these matters!

    i do think that darcy changes, but i also think that our perception of him changes even more than he does. i think he was always a man of integrity, but because he was so consciously dedicated to doing the right/proper thing, he thought he was always right and didn't realized his views of things could be drastically off. i think it says something to his true gentle nature (as we see he always had with his sister), that he realizes he was wrong and corrects his mistakes. he doesn't go rigid and defensive, and just ignore everything and block out differing voices. he has a gentle/kind core that realizes he was wrong and he has the integrity to fix it. those are qualities that any person, man or woman, can aspire to have.
    EDIT: i wrote this at 28:56 in the video, and then just watched the rest and they said exactly what i wanted to say, but better lmao.... ("Darcy evolves, and that's why it works." "And both of [their] perceptions of each other evolve. Darcy changes, but it's not a huge change." "He has the same values at the beginning and at the end, what he drops is 'My perspective is the right perspective. Period.'".)

    It's different from Twilight because while Elizabeth, like Bella, has an attraction towards Darcy, she never loses her sense of reason. She realizes she likes and loathes him and knows that as long as she loathes, him being with him is impossible. Elizabeth is a prime example of staying true to oneself and not completely losing it over the tiniest hint of attraction to another person.

    One of my favourite moments in the whole book is the scene where Elizabeth visits Mr. Darcy's manor-and it's not the grandeur or the wealth of the place that sticks out to her, but the way that he's used his money to take care of both the place and the people. She talks to the people that work under him, and they all genuinely seem to care for him (and all don't speak so highly of Mr. Wickham!). I think it's the point where the attraction and the pull she has been pushing away really turns into love.
    Especially when you consider how it contrasts to her own family. With her mother and her "well if I just marry them off to ANYBODY, the family will be saved!" kind of attitude, that doesn't care at all for her own personal happiness in a life-partner/husband (which, though not entirely unexpected for the time, a key defining feature of Elizabeth is that she wants to be lastingly happy in a relationship-marrying a man like Mr. Collins would be very destructive to her).
    Or add her father's "I won't inconvenience myself to help or protect you-and I'll point and laugh at each of you while you're suffering" kind of distance from them into the mix, even if he likes and favours Elizabeth and Jane.
    To see Mr. Darcy, who has everything, and doesn't technically need to look after everything as well as he does (unlike her father), but does it anyway... he's a nurturer (unlike her mother), and like Elizabeth, he's willing to take the step back and reflect on his wrongdoings (unlike a lot of her family), and those are both great sources of the widespread appeal and attraction to him, I think.

      What she's actually writing is social commentary and I think if you reread or listen to the audiobooks with the idea that she's commenting on how the Society of her time works. And especially in like Northanger Abbey where she's making fun of the gothic novel.
      If you read them with the understanding of what she's making fun of I think you will like it better if you are not thinking of them this romance's cuz they're not.
      You might want to check out Dr Octavia Cox she is a doctor of literature she's super intelligent. she covers basically all aspects of Pride and Prejudice and a lot of Jane Austen's other work as well as well as reading some stories that Jane Austin wrote as a child that influence her later work it is really interesting.
      I think if you look at the stories as a puzzle box of her commenting about her time you'll enjoy it more. Because once you get how sarcastic and kind of mean spirited she can be it's so much more entertaining than thinking of it as being part of the modern romance genre.

    I loved this film since it came out in 2005, and I love that sooo many essays can be written analyzing the masterpiece of storytelling in this film. Everytime, I see something new upon rewatching.
    CASE IN POINT!! 27:13 when he says Keira is just pondering, "doing nothing" I realize it's very similar to how ghibli films include moments of stillness, reflection, and time passing to let the characters and audience breathe together. And bc Joe Wright included those moments (lizzie on the swing, lizzie walking across fields, lizzie on a cliff), it grounds the film in an "everyday" relatability, and shows snippets of her on her growth journey.
    Miyazaki said including 'mundane' moments, like a long wait for a bus, are important bc it is the space between actions that allow us time to contemplate and decompress.
    I think that's part of what makes this 2005 adaptation so well made and unique; it includes those moments of (in japanese) "ma" in a western film- the space between, the contemplative pauses.

    I must admit I haven't watched this version of P & P before. I am a diehard fan of the older BBC series with Jennifer Ehle as Elizabeth and Colin Firth as Mr Darcy. Colin made such a spectacular Mr Darcy, it was impossible not to fall in love with him. Especially the way he said the line (that doesn't appear to be in this newer version?) “You must allow me to tell you how ardently I admire and love you".
    Not only does Mr Darcy love Elizabeth, its so clear he really values and appreciates her for her mind and spirit, not only her looks. Something that's lost in romances made today, oftentimes. I enjoyed your video! :-)

    So I have always felt her full rejection of him when he proposed was because of her protective nature over her sister. And when they meet in the meadow, he tells her to say the word and he’ll forever leave. She does not say the word. For the first time, she makes intentional contact with him and comments on his well being. This was her way of showing she cares for him. It’s so beautiful and simple.

    I'm so glad that you did this and that you pointed out so clearly why Elizabeth and Darcy's relationship works and is healthy and why Edward and Bella's is not.
    Another reason why this works, and Edward and Bella doesn't, is because Darcy never lies to Elizabeth, or keeps information from her to "protect" her. Darcy actually does the opposite, and completely honest with her about his feelings and the perceived obstacles to their relationship.
    Edward constantly hides things from Bella and outright lies to her about stuff, saying he wants to protect her, and it usually ends up being more dangerous for Bella than if he had just been honest.
    Now, you could argue that Darcy hid information from Elizabeth by not telling her what he did for Lydia and Jane, but I would say that first, Darcy wasn't physically around Elizabeth, and in the right situation to tell her. And in Lydia's case, it was the duty of Lydia's relatives to make the situation right and restore, at least partly, the family's honor. Darcy could not make public the fact that he helped without making Elizabeth's father and uncle incapable and incompetent. Darcy had to keep his actions secret so he could help them and it still look like the father and uncle did their duty. The Bennetts would likely have faced public humiliation if Darcy's help was known. And, he's not hiding this stuff to "protect" her. He's keeping it secret to because he's just trying to do the right thing, not win her love.

She was a fully formed person before and after Darcy, but both were made better by their relationship, and through a willingness to admit wrongdoings and embrace change. Bella had none of those things, and neither Twilight character experienced any real growth.

      @Madama Belladonna this is so funny 😂, " nothing Can excuse her" did she stab them with a fork ?! IS she obligated to talk to those douchebags and the girl who abselotly hated her but stuck around her because she was popular ? Lol it's the idiocy that i expected ! How was she condescending ?? She was far nice to them than she should ! Those guys are literal predators, in New Moon she got out of weeks of depression and the first thing Mike does is Ask her out 🤦.. like she was Ready to have a new boyfriend.. none of them Care about her but she is obligated to talk to Them.. OMG..
      This is a literal hatred dumb cult 🤦
      Edward didn't control bella's life, he objected to her turning into a vampire, he also wanted her to stop speculating About his " Supernatural secret" because his family threatened to kill her if she doesn't stop asking ! How did this get translated into control and abuse?? Ow that's right, everything Gets misinterpreted in this serie because people want to hate it so much.. yea you people are bull s**t , get a life,

      @Madama Belladonna you taged Mona but i think your comment was for me, so i'll respond to you, Edward came from a different time where he believes that becoming a vampire makes you "lose your soul", saying that he " Never listened to her" is abselotly ridiculous, they talked about everything and he listened to her about everything, he just didn't want her to be transformed into a vampire at the age of 17 ! And He was abselotly right ! She was too young to be making this decision, because her body will change and there is no turning back ! Personaly i feel so different now that i am above 25 from what i felt when i was 17, the choices that i Make now are very different, so i agree with him,
      Secondly, Bella was definetly Shy and introverted, if you don't relate to her that's fine, but this doesn't mean that you Can bé disrespectfull towards people who are like her, she struggles with social anxiety like lots of us.. so stop being so insulting..
      As for bella's " Friends" , these Friends are basicaly 3 guys who asked her out in one day , not because they liked her but because she was the New " shiny toy", it was disgusting, they had no Idea who she was and they created this secret bet between them to : " see who Gets to take her out " , none of them cared About her, there is also Jessica who abselotly hated her because she was getting all the attention, there was only the other nice girl wearing glasses, but even she avoided her and just kind of stuck with her old Friends, so i don't blame Bella for staying away from all of them, they were Never Real " Friends",the only people who knew Bella in that town were Edward, Jacob and the cullens, so yea she was right, and you are just a biased obsessed person who joined the Twilight hatred cult !

    I love love love love love this so much. I really hoped I would've seen you guys react to how Darcy stretched his hand after holding Lizzy's. It was heartwarming and small but so relatable, I do it after I hold hands with a crush and it's such simple body language, such a non-verbal confession. I enjoyed their body language so much. Darcy is so awkward to me, a spectacular introvert who was adopted by his extroverted redhead bestie who he'd do anything to keep him safe. Though I definitely feel like past experiences with that gold digger (his name leaves my mind in a blink) lead him to mistrust 'love' very heavily, especially when it comes with class. He is so clearly shown as a product of his upbringing so well that it's intriguing

    I can't adress enough how much I love this story, in the book and this movie. The first time I watched it I thought: "this is the most romantic movie ever" and then I realized that they don't share even one small kiss througout the whole thing (unless you watch the extended version) other than that little one at the end, when Lizzie kisses Darcy's hand, it's so wholesom, I was amaze by that and it made me think that love is so much more!
    When Darcy "proposes" the first time you can see how unsettled he was to be rejected, obviously that hasn't happen before, then she points that he ruined her sister's happiness and he accepts it, he can even keep composure after ranting about Lizzie's family and seein how angry she was, but the minute she starts to ask about Wickham he loses his composure and comes towards her, they get so mad! The tension of this moment is epic and then he leans just a little bit, you can see that he is dying to kiss her and she kind of wants to be kissed too, but then he stops, apologizes, turns around and leave and she is left there wanting more!
    There are two things that, to me, are what makes this one of my top three favorite stories ever. One is the realization that people can choose to become a better person and not to please someone else, but because they look at themselves and they didn't like what they saw. And the fact that that was wrapped up in the most beautiful love story ever just makes it perfect.
    The other thing that I absolutely adore about this story is the love that Mr. Bennet has for Lizzie. Obviously, her mom didn't had her in high steem, she didn't show any care for Lizzie, if it weren't for her dad, her mom would have made Lizzie marry Mr. Collins. That last scene when she starts to say to her dad how stubborn she and Darcy were and how similar they really are, with her shinning eyes and that smile, the amazing Donald Sutherland looks at her and starts laughing and crying at the same time, so happy for her, it never fails to make me cry. As a woman that grew up without her father because he chose to leave, seeing how he reacts to her beloved daughter well deserved happiness makes me feel so full of love, it is so beautiful, I just love it so much!
    The second proposal just makes me want to go wander to a beautiful meadow just hoping that I would find a Mr. Darcy walking slowly towards me... I better go and watch the movie again...

      Your description of the first proposal is one of the many reasons that I really dislike this movie adaptation. To take one of the most important scenes in the entire story and completely change what is going on in it to such an extent shows either a complete lack of understanding or a complete lack of respect for the source material.
      "The tension of this moment is epic and then he leans just a little bit, you can see that he is dying to kiss her and she kind of wants to be kissed too, but then he stops, apologizes, turns around and leave and she is left there wanting more!"
      You describe the movie scene perfectly, but nothing of this happens in the book. There is nothing in the description of the scene in the book that suggests anything even remotely like Darcy wanting to kiss Lizzie here, much less him dying to kiss her. His feelings are described in terms of him hearing her answer with "no less resentment than surprise" after which "his complexion became pale with anger". He continues to pass through a range of emotions, all of them in the negative, and the last we're told about them is that he looks at Lizzie in astonishment, "with an expression mingled incredulity and mortification".
      And _Lizzie's_ feelings at this point are described over and over again as nothing but negative. Her "deeply-rooted dislike" is mentioned and how she "lost all compassion in anger" as he yammered on about her connections. How his certainty of a favourable reply could only "exasperate farther" and she flat out states "Had not my own feelings decided against you - had they been indifferent, or had they even been favourable, do you think any consideration would tempt me to accept the man who has been the means of ruining, perhaps forever, the happiness of a most beloved sister?" Towards the end of their conversation "Elizabeth felt herself growing more angry every moment.
      There is nothing in this text - not the teensiest little term - that even remotely suggests that the "adaptation" the movie makers have decided to go with has any place here. They have done so purely because it satisfied their own ideas of what would be a better dramatic flair and to me it shows an enormous disrespect both towards Austen's skills as a writer and towards their intended demographic, whom they obviously don't trust to be intelligent enough to be able to appreciate a movie with any sort of romantic plot line without turning it into a tiresome run of the mill "they're only arguing because they want each other so badly - ah, let's not forget to make them both wet in this scene, people being wet make them so much sexier!" mess.

    What's powerful about this story is it's not just Darcy that changes - Lizzie does too. They both had to grow and mature before their relationship could become a reality. Darcy had to work to overcome his prejudice - to realize the error of his previous actions and go to lengths to correct them. But Lizzie also had to overcome her pride and learn humility -- to learn that she could also be wrong (about Wickham, about who Darcy really was). By the time the story ends they're both more mature and have both learned from the errors of their ways to ultimately become better versions of themselves.

    Charlotte tried to tell Elizabeth that Jane needed to make her feelings more clear to Charles kzclip.org/video/r5cqa9V0mUo/бейне.html. She even had inklings that Lizzie really like Darcy. Not many people pay attention to Charlotte's dialogue with it's advisements in the movie. Lizzie also saw how her family behaved at the dance, so she new Darcy's comments were true. That's why she brought up Mr. Wickham. That cut him. Man I love this movie.

    I hope most readers/viewers get that Darcy isn't a "bad boy." Wickham is the really dangerous one. Darcy is mainly awkward and very much a product of his time and class. Matching up with a seeming "bad boy" works mainly because he's got a heart of gold under the prickly exterior. There's enough evidence throughout the story that Darcy was really a caring guy the entire time, but had his judgment clouded by various factors.

      @Two Finger Jack Mr. Bennet wasn't a great father. Yes, he helped Elizabeth out but he didn't make sure that his wife and children would be okay. He didn't try to set funds aside for his wife, didn't lead the family, and did not protect them from their selves and others, which was really important at the time. He also didn't set up dowries befitting his daughter's status.

      Tbh, in the book and the movie, he came off as so incredibly awkward to me, like he has not really interacted with people on a casual level and is literally just stumbling through grasping his teachings and pulling them close to his heart like armour, because he knows that if he allows any to take advantage of him, just how dangerous it could get for him and the people he cared for. Honestly, I loved him the first time I met him in the book, because of his potential for change, because for all of his quick attacks while talking to Lizzy, he learned, because when one learns something so different from their norm, they start to compare and become confused by it and the confusion breeds the need for comprehension and he really didn't disappoint. No lie, I wanted to rugby tackle him at times though

      It's clear that Mr. Darcy had a loving childhood and was able to see her as a person. A lesser man would have done the things for her (remember he Knew Wickhams true character already) and expected her to fall all over him for it in "repayment". Mr Darcy revealed his actions humbly and said "if your feelings haven't changed, so be it and I'll be on my way". He did all the things in the background that took a lot of effort, time and money, AND THEN he laid no expectations on her. This is the true opposite of pridefulness, and shows his true goodness.
      What was it about Wickham's life vs Darcy 's that made him turn out to be a serial offender and Darcy able to actually humble himself and change? Darcy and Wickham are like examples of manhood. Men, don't be like Wickham. Be like Darcy or Mr Bennett: intelligent, loving, able to see the good in a person, and able to change their mind or ways.

    I know a majority of Jane Austen fans prefer the BBC version with Colin Firth because it is more faithful to the text. But I have ALWAYS preferred this version, because I feel like it's more faithful to the emotion and tone of the novel. The little details, like the dirt on Elizabeth's hem after walking to see her ill sister, just make this feel more real in a way that the BBC version doesn't.
    Though not in a romantic relationship, I also have my own story where I was Darcy. In college, I was taking a class about Jane Austen adaptations and we were assigned a group project. The first thing I said to one of the people assigned to my group was, "I hate group projects." We met after class one day to work on the project and she stayed later to hang out for a bit. As she was leaving, she asked for my phone number and I told her she could find me on Facebook before shutting the door in her face. She's somehow now my best friend. (I wasn't trying to be awful, I was just very shy and panicked.)

      Excellent response, in every respect. When this movie came out, I was keen to see it because I thought it might give me a quick version of the story for times when I don't have sufficient time for the 1995 BBC series. Well, sadly for me, all I could think when it was over was "Well, that's two hours if my life I'll never get back". My daughter had the DVD and I did try to watch it again, which I did a few times, but I usually got only so far before turning it off in disgust. Darcy was full, Lizzy giggled to much and Bingley's a dolt. The Bennet's were the major family in the area, not grubby farmers with a pug roaming through the house! I've seen the atrocious American ending too, which is truly vomit-inducing. It's only saving graces are the music, the scenery and that if it introduces younger people to the genius of Jane Austen that is a good thing.

      "The little details, like the dirt on Elizabeth's hem after walking to see her ill sister, just make this feel more real in a way that the BBC version doesn't."
      There is plenty of dirt on Lizzie's hem in the BBC version. The scene where she's walking to Netherfield shows her feet slipping underneath her as she walks on the muddy pathway.
      And I would actually argue that the reason I love the mini series and next to abhor the 2005 movie version is that the movie conveys almost nothing of the feeling of the book. All the drama that the colour palette and the movie score lays on thick has nothing to do with the tone of the book. And just Cinema Therapy pointing out how parts of the first proposal is literally emphasised by thunder(!) makes it very obvious how ridiculously over the top this adaptation is. Not to mention the ridiculousness of having both Lizzie and Darcy be dripping wet. What is this - a harlequin novel? There are so many other things throughout the adaptation that is just pure ridiculousness and only demonstrates that the movie makers neither understand nor respect the source material. Like having Lady Catherine show up as the Bennet's in the middle of the night - what on earth was that even about? And the nail in the coffin for me was when they actually phrase poor Darcy's second proposal almost exactly like Gene Kelly's comedic line in Singing in the Rain; "and I love, I love... love you." I never know whether to laugh or cry at it but I'm always taken aback by the fact that no one in the production team seemed to have noticed the similarity to the "I love you, I love you, I love you, looooove you" in Singing in the Rain, which was followed by the audience laughing furiously and one man asking "Did somebody get paid for writing that dialogue?"
      I think the movie is pretty enough - it has high production values for sure - but for me it conveys pretty much nothing of the book. It feels as is the creators wanted to make a Bronte adaptation but decided to use Austen's work for it due to the popularity of Pride and Prejudice giving them more free publicity.

    I love Lizzie's expression as she walks away after the "Barely tolerable" retort because, up until that point, she only seems happy and unaffected by the opinions of others and her sad expression tells me that in truth, she was hurt. Not just "he wounded my pride" but that his comment actually hit a vulnerable spot for her. after all, she has been compared to her older sister who is seen as the most beautiful sister and for Darcy to compliment her sister and insult her in the same breath had to hurt immensely. Her mother can say those things and she forgives her because she knows that her mother loves her and doesn't mean anything by it, but for it to come from Darcy... It was more than just wounded pride. Also, I think she expected her throwing the comment back to relieve the sting of his words. I know that when someone hurts my feelings and I lash out back, I expect to feel vindicated. but if I do, it only lasts a second or two and then the hurt comes back and I feel it even more deeply because my one weapon against it has proved insufficient and now I am defenseless.

    At 6:49. LOL. I had the same reaction to the novel. Not the first time, though. The first time I read this novel was when I was an immature, callow, science-obsessed 17-year-old geek in AP English class in high school. I found it utterly boring, and couldn't figure out the point to it. Then I read it again in my late 30s, and--wow!--I was gobsmacked that this was written 200 years ago. This novel is so modern and, frankly, so "miss nasty," with such scathing sarcasm, wit and word play. I also had context to the gossip, since by my late 30s I had gossiped with so many of my friends about romantic relationships, marriages and money. I got it. I really got it. This life experience of adulting made the novel a million times better.

    I've only seen Pride and Prejudice recently and I loved it so much. It instantly became not just my favorite falling in love story but also my favorite enemies to lovers story. I'm glad to see it covered by you.

    Keira's indignation is an absolute force in every bit of acting she's ever done and I loooove it.
    When I read Twilight, before seeing it, I genuinely thought the author intended it as authentic horror drawing comparison between teenage "love" and vampirism and I thought it was fantastic. The face I made when I found out how very VERY wrong I was: 😬😬😬

    Truly, I thought I was the only person who hated "Twilight". I can't believe it but you made me love "Pride and Prejudice" even more! Talk about about a woman with mad game! I adored how she stood up for her family and how deeply she respected her father. The snappy dialogue and the fact she doesn't care if Mr. Money Bags is offended has always made this story a winner for me. Such tender confessions but no complete engagement is done until Elizabeth clears Darcy with her father - that's my true 'ahhhh' moment. The fact that you two softies love this, I'm not amazed. I greatly enjoyed Megan's input. Great entry.

    Ah that part in the end card when Bingley is like “Miss Bennet” and Darcy just answers “Mr. Bingley.” And bows - comedy gold

    I"ve heard someone say somewhere that Darcy is the perfect man because he takes the critisism and works on himself to become better.

      @JannyKey007 she was definitively smarter than most of the people, and better or at least more respectful than Darcy..

      @Fidele TAMO excuse me, but Elizabeth also always thinks she is smarter and better than everyone, so they are pretty equal in their pride.
      Plus we are talking about a made up character, you know that right?

      The perfect man who would insult your family and yourself for being poor, while asking you to marry him? Lol, he's a good Guy but his arrogance is just unbearable..

    There are three things I love most about Darcy and Lizzie's relationship: respect, honesty and love of each other's intellect.
    They are honest about the hurtful things the other does, but also accept that they do hurtful things themselves and BOTH try to fix it.
    They love to have deep conversations, and even when Lizzie is disgusted and infuriated with Darcy, they have to be torn away from their discussions.
    They respect each other's right to say no, to stay away, to their own opinions and desires.
    Each grows from the other and supports the other without needing to gain anything from it. Yet it isn't complete independence either; they still are sad they aren't together, still long for the other, still think of each other consistently.
    THIS is actual love. It isn't grasping. It isn't simping. It's slow and it's deep and truly giving. And often as not, sad, particularly when the people in love aren't mature enough yet to know how to love well.
    I'm glad it included the sadness in a quiet way, as yes, there is often a lot of crying when you lose what you love, especially when it's looking back; but also, longer term, a quiet sense of deep loss. It's like a light has gone out. Oddly, as that light goes out, others often turn on; being loved and loving leads to learning to love yourself.
    So it starts as this dark room where they care about shallow things that don't really matter; then the one light turns on, full of love for another person; then all the rest turn on, full of love for oneself and real love for the others in life. But if the person you loved is gone, that first bright corner is now dark, with little bright spots where memories shine.
    Ahhh, too much. I'm glad Darcy and Lizzie got their happy ending and the way they got there, full of growth!!

    I sincerely doubt you will given you've covered this version, but I'd LOVE to see your guys' take on Pride and Prejudice and Zombies. The added element of matched *physical* fighting during the proposal, and the fact there's a muuuuch bigger priority throughout the film's background, just kind of really adds something to Darcy and Elizabeth's dynamic.
    Plus, it's hilarious. 😂

    Mr Bennet is my favorite character, he only immerses himself in paramount matters that affect the family. He only speaks when required and doesn’t involve himself in frivolity.

      Interesting take. In the book I think he is very flawed - he is bitter and takes a hands off approach that leaves his family open to ridicule and ruin. I don't care for him at all! I do think the movie makes him a more sympathetic character though.

    "why does it work for them and not for twilight" it's just so funny how twilight has become the example of what not to do in a relationship in comparison to every other movie!

    Pride and Prejudice accomplishes something soooo many rom-coms can't: making us feel her suspense. Back then, there was literally no mechanism for a woman to propose to a man. Having rejected him, she has little choice but to suffer with the growing realization that she loves him but has blown it. (Jane warns her about this when she says, "One of these days, Lizzie, something will catch your eye and then you'll have to watch your tongue." The scene when she says, "Jane, I've been so blind" you can feel her misery.
