My 2015 Reading Wrap-Up

Over the past couple of years, I have documented every film that I have watched and reviewed them all using Letterboxd. As a way to motivate myself to read more, I thought I would do the same for what books I have been reading, using Goodreads as a way to set myself a reading challenge.

Film Review: Pride and Prejudice (2005)

Directed by Joe Wright and based on Jane Austen‘s 1813 novel of the same name, Pride and Prejudice is set in the close of the 18th century which follows Mr and Mrs Bennets (Brenda Blethyn and Donald Sutherland), the parents of five daughters, who are comfortable within their means but well short of rich. Looking for suitable husbands for their girls, they are encouraged to learn that an eligible young bachelor from a wealthy family, Charles Bingley (Simon Woods), has moved into a nearby estate. Eager to see if a match can be made, the Bennets bring their daughters, Elizabeth (Keira Knightley) and Jane (Rosamund Pike), to a ball thrown by their new neighbour to see if sparks will fly. Jane seems to like Charles, and he appears to feel the same, but Elizabeth takes an immediate dislike to his best friend, Darcy (Matthew MacFadyen). As fate causes Elizabeth and Darcy to frequently cross paths, and while they don’t care for one another, they can’t stop thinking about each other, either.
