Transcript of novel year-end-project
based on Jane Austen’s novel of the same name.
Produced by Working Title Films in association with Studio Canal.
The film was released on 16 September 2005 in the United Kingdom and Ireland and 11 November in the United States.
Screenwriter Deborah Moggach spent over two years adapting Pride and Prejudice for film. Realising it held "a perfect three act structure”(Spunberg, 2011) , Moggach attempted to be as faithful to the original novel as possible, calling it "so beautifully shaped as a story – the ultimate romance about two people who think they hate each other but who are really passionately in love.
With relatively inexpensive budget of $28 millions, P&P earned at the box office a worldwide gross of approximately $121 million Let's watch the trailer! Summary of the movie The novel centers on the Bennet family, consisting of the bookish Mr Bennet, his wife and primarily concerned with her family's fortunes and anxious to marry of her five daughters.
The story follows the main character , Elizabeth Bennet ,a 20 years old intelligent, lively, attractive and witty lady but with a tendency to judge on first impression (the "prejudice" of the title) and in the story it’s the case with Mr Darcy whose aloof decorum and rectitude are seen by many as an excessive pride.
She charges him with destroying Jane's happiness, treating Mr Wickham disgracefully, and having conducted himself towards her in an arrogant, ungentleman-like manner. As she deals with issues of manners, upbringing, morality, education, and marriage, later in the story, they both overcome their judgements' and surrender to love they have for each other. J.A’ Pride and Prejudice in pop culture Reality meeting fiction In “The Sense of an Ending”, Julian Barnes writes:
“ This was another of our fears ; that life wouldn’t turn to be like literature.”
Continuous reading and indulging in literature sometimes intrigues people wondering of living like what literature tells us-predominantly happens to women.
Novel Pride and Prejudice (1813) gives the same affection hence the need of emergence of cultural product tackles the reality meeting with fiction.
“Lost in Austen” – a story of a modern London girl, Amanda Price who is a keen fan of J.A’s novel, to discover a secret portal in her flat that brings her to enter the world of J.A’s Pride and Prejudice. This happens whilst she wonders why her boyfriend does not bear any resemblance to her favourite novel heroes. Representation of romance in motion picture The movie is the manifestation of motion picture describing what romantic love looks like when it is covered in real life and not in words.
“ Romantic is not merely about sexual intercourse but, the story that matter”.
The presentation of romance genre in the movie is commercially attractive enough to make people looks for the literature piece.
