In 1939, young Oliver, Calypso, Polly and Walter visit friends and family in Cornwall. Spanish Civil War is over and WW2 has begun, so they enjoy their love life while they can. Decades later, they gather again, this time for a funereal.
Sparks fly when spirited Elizabeth Bennet meets single, rich, and proud Mr. Darcy. But Mr. Darcy reluctantly finds himself falling in love with a woman beneath his class. Can each overcome their own pride and prejudice?
This is an average film that just happens to contain a large number of memorable quotes, and for that reason alone I would have to say that I enjoyed this movie. The storyline is rather uninspired, as this film tells the story of five completely different people who live in isolation after being the lone survivors of a plane crash. Needless to say, these polar opposites continually butt heads, and civil conversations almost always disintegrate into heated arguments. Yet having said all that, I still managed to like this film. The performances are all good, it moves along at a good pace, and the writing is clever enough that I still remember lines from this film, even though I haven't seen it in four years. I'm not quite sure of how available this film is, but if you ever come across it, give it a chance.
