Pride and Prejudice

A story of innitial misunderstandings resolved between two lovely couple of different social standing. The setting portrays a brilliant satire of a polite society in the 18th - 19th century of England.

Darcy, a haughty, handsome and wealthy gentlemen who overcome his initial pride and disagreement on the notion of marriage to a girl of a lower class - even to the point of preventing the marriage of his good friend, Bingley, to whom he is so madly in love with (Jane Bennet, Elizabeth's beloved sister), with his overpowering affection for witty and vivacious Lizzy.

How sweet! The power of love...

I also admire Lizzy's ( Elizabeth) wit and honesty that made her stood out from the rest of the ladies featured in the film, even more appealing the prettiest of the lot (five bennet sisters), Jane. Her character is quite bold in a genteel society of the 19th century England, where politeness is observed to the point of preventing people from "speaking the truth from their heart".
