Pride and Prejudice as a modern tale of music & love.

Elizabeth Bennet (Gugu Mbatha-Raw) is an aspiring songwriter. She spends most of her days writing songs, much to her sisters’ amusement. Jane (Lupita Nyong’o) is happy being a quiet accountant, but Lydia (Jessica Sula) dreams of stardom, of singing the songs her sister only wants to write. 

One day, the Bennet sisters are invited to an exhibition for aspiring musicians, attended by some of music’s elite. Most notably is Fitzwilliam Darcy (Oscar Isaac), the intense singer-songwriter who criticizes one of Elizabeth’s songs without realizing she’s behind him. Jane meets Bingley (Ruth Negga), Darcy’s beautiful and kind agent. The sisters also meet George Wickham (Scott Michael Foster), the infamous pop star.

Elizabeth finally finds a hit song when she writes the song “Proud” about the interaction with Darcy, which becomes a YouTube sensation when Lydia performs it for her vlog. As their lives become more intertwined, Darcy becomes suspicious of Jane’s affections for his agent. As Jane and Bingley fall apart, his interest in Elizabeth grows. He writes a song for Elizabeth called “Ardently”, which confesses his attraction for her at the same time as belittling her station as an amateur, her stardom-seeking sister, and his own reservations about her. 

Elizabeth is not amused.

The two continue to circle each other as Elizabeth is signed as a songwriter by his label, Pemberley, and they begin to work on writing songs together. Things are interrupted, however, when they discover that Wickham has been manipulating Lydia with promises of the spotlight.

the lizzie bennet diaries meme:

five characters; lydia bennet
“I can be loud, and obnoxious. I enjoy partying, occasionally too much, and I don’t always avoid trouble very well. I nag on my sisters, and my cousin, too, and sometimes I forget that the world doesn’t revolve around me. I think I’m getting better at that. Everything that I am is made up of both my failures and my successes. My attempts and my stumbles. I’ve learned that in order to rise up from failure, and move forward, you have to acknowledge when you’ve failed to begin with[…]Because another thing he has failed at doing is taking my identity, and taking my voice. Those are mine. And with them, I can always turn my failures into strengths. That’s kind of the point, isn’t it?“

@evilythedwarf this is how we’re solving the Blue Fairy problem.  @standbackufools came up with the idea of using the Arkham Harley and since she’d used Jane Bennet for Tink’s head I suggested Elizabeth Bennet for Blue’s as it would require no painting and there is something… fitting about fairies have regency hair.

welcome to elsinore, a town just outside of pennsylvania, yet there’s something a bit off about it. everyone seems…familiar, even if you’re just passing through there’s something about the people that you can’t help but recognize. that girl that just gave you your coffee seems oddly like elizabeth bennet from pride and prejudice, and that guy that bumped into you seems a lot like vincent vega from pulp fiction. even if they look different and have different names, they still have that special vibe about them. not that anyone minds, who wouldn’t want to live in a town surrounded by their favorite fictional characters?

Movie Meme: {1/20 Movies}

Pride and Prejudice

You must know… surely, you must know it was all for you. You are too generous to trifle with me. I believe you spoke with my aunt last night, and it has taught me to hope as I’d scarcely allowed myself before. If your feelings are still what they were last April, tell me so at once. My affections and wishes have not changed, but one word from you will silence me forever. If, however, your feelings have changed, I will have to tell you: you have bewitched me, body and soul, and I love, I love, I love you. I never wish to be parted from you from this day on.

PRIDE & PREJUDICE (2005) x BEAUTY AND THE BEAST (1991)
“There’s something sweet and almost kind
But he was mean and he was coarse and unrefined
And now he’s dear and so I’m sure
I wonder why I didn’t see it there before.”
