Pride and Prejudice 2
The women of Pride and Prejudice
The complete cast. Why does Lydia look so frumpy?
A rare shot
Watching their future husbands enter the assembly.
Did you know Keira played the decoy queen in the Phantom Menace?
An Education, another remarkable film with Jane and Kitty.
Deleted scene. Bennett carriage stops as Militia passes by.
He's already in love.
Listen to your sister my dear brother.
How can I make amends for such behaviour? (I had to spell it that way.)
Doesn't suit him.
Coming or going?
Lizzie in Neverfield.
The various bookcovers.
To get into the real emotions, she was thinking of her mom when she died.
Another behind the scenes photo
Jane and Bingley
Did you get to keep the bust of Darcy?
Matthew Macfadyen: I’m waiting to be offered it. I don’t know where it is.
Joe Wright: Actually the Duchess of Devonshire got it. it’s on display at Chatsworth.
Plain but charming.
In one of the sequel books, Georgiana, Darcy's sister is knocked up by his friend, Fitzwilliam.
The scene that both Matthew Macfadyen and Keira Knightley singled out as memorable in the film was the first proposal 'rain' scene, shot under rain machines. "That was a good scene," says MacFadyen, "We called it the 'car crash scene.'" He describes it as his favorite while Knightley says it was 'the most difficult' scene, but added that it was still 'fantastic.'
Wait, I caught you snooping in my house!
I shall let Jane and Bingley have their day and wait my turn tomorrow. In the meantime, go ahead and agonize.
The novice and the expert.
What's wrong with this picture?
No, they weren't writing to each other, obviously.
The two Mrs. Darcys.
That was the original name of the book according to Jane Austen.
She was probably home reading or playing the pianoforte.
Matthew, hands down.
Keira hands down.
I liked 2004 and 2005.
Kitty: Can I wear your spotted muslin? Oh, please, Jane.
Jane: No, I need it.
Kitty: Please, Jane, I'll lend you my green sleepers.
Jane: They were mine.
Kitty: Oh, where they? Well, then I'll do your mending for a week.
Lydia: I'll return your new bonnet.
Kitty: Two weeks.
Lydia: I'll repay you myself Jane.
Lydia: Jane, look at me, Jane.
Jane: But I want to wear it myself.
“In the novel, Austen’s characters are all very polite, waiting until the other person has finished speaking, before speaking themselves. But I know that, particularly in big families of girls, everyone tends to speak over each other, finishing each other’s sentences, etc. So I felt that the Bennet family’s conversations would be overlapping like that.”
(Joe Wright, P&P director)
One of the famous hand scenes.
The calm and confident hand scene.
Never mind them and Lizzie. I'll marry you!
She looks like a crow amidst her fancied up mom and sisters.
Dear God, I can't go to Pemberley!
Their first touch.
I'll give you the liberty of explaining yourself, but I really don't care. Just glad that you're here.
This scene was derived from a teen movie in the 80s. Forgot which one.
No one writes like that anymore. Such classic.
Was she really in a trance when he showed up with his letter?
"Mr. Collins! You can't sit next to your wife! Move, over there!" - Lady Catherine
Nervous as hell.
My embarrassing family.
Taking a break.
You can't be serious Charles!
