Discover anew the dramatic world of Pride and Prejudice. In early nineteenth-century England, Elizabeth Bennet and her four sisters are expected to secure their future by a suitable marriage. The family’s modest assets, however, make that a challenging prospect. Though the new neighbor Mr. Bingley would be a good match, his haughty friend Mr. Darcy does not hold the Bennets in high regard. Societal expectations and romantic aspirations collide and make finding an appropriate spouse a dramatic endeavor.
