just some little pride and prejudice (2005) things i love

  • the sense of chaotic female energy in the Bennet household
  • the sound of tinkling piano music and bird song and giggling 
  • when Jane tries to pull a ‘not all men’ on Lizzy but Lizzy is havin none of it and calls all men humourless poppycocks  
  • Lizzy’s satisfied smirk as she STRIDES away after sending mr darcy 2 his grave with ‘even if one’s partner is barely tolerable’ 
  • Lizzy and Jane giggling under the covers 😭
  • Mrs Bennet discussing Mr Bennets imposing death over the breakfast table and nobody bats an eyelid except to be like ‘its 10am’  like this obviously happens A Lot 
  • And then Mr Bennet and lizzy joke about Jane dying like why does this Regency era family have the humour of millennials  
  • when Darcy is listing all the things an accomplished woman should have and he says ‘she should expand her mind with extensive reading’ or w.e and lizzy SNAPS that book shut so fast
  • the Mrs Bennet Pig Testicle Scene Nobody Talks About 
  • the hand 
  • after Mr Collins proposal when Mrs Bennet goes to Mr Bennet for help and he’s just like up a ladder ? And all he does up there is pick up a pot plant? I’m thoroughly convinced he just climbed that ladder to avoid the drama ((he failed))
  • the dramatic ZOOM when Darcy bursts into the room just to stand around, make one line of polite conversation, and then leave
  • m not going to comment abt the rain scene bc theres too much to unpack but THE RAIN SCENE 
  • ‘He’s so. he’s so… he’s so RICH’ i feel u girl 
  • The dreamy shots of Pemberley + dreamy music music layered with Darcy’s housekeeper saying lovely things about him like you know Lizzy was falling in love with him right then and there even tho he wasn’t even in the room
  • All the ripped statues probably help
  •  Shame that the scene where Darcy sees Lizzy at Pemberly for the first time will be forever ruined because all i can hear in my head is RUN 
  • Turns up in the middle of the night, invites self in, insults the size of the garden….. an icon 
  • The fact that the entire Bennet family listening in to private conversations at the door is a recurring theme 
  • “i love… i love… i love you”
  • the last scene of Lizzy and her dad laughing and crying at how in love she is is the goodest purest scene and in This House we don’t speak of the american alternate ending
