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?

Mr. Guy Darcy is a shy, rich, man who defiantly believes there is such a thing as superior birth. Written by
Pemberley exteriors/Pemberley's grand staircase/Pemberley's sculpture gallery were filmed at Chatsworth House in Derbyshire, England. Chatsworth house has been the family home of the Duke of Devonshire and his family since 1549. In 2008, Keira Knightley would star in The Duchess as Georgiana Cavendish, 5th Duchess of Devonshire.

Every hairstyle is wrong, the Bennett family look and behave like Californian hippies prone to spouting (very) occasional bits of Austen dialogue.
I will give you one key indicator of how badly researched and produced this film is: at one point Lady Catherine de Burgh, one of the great snobs in English literature, is handed a cup of tea by a servant and says "thank you"!
