Pride & Prejudice

Jane Austin's classic novel graces the silver screen with Keira Knightley and Matthew MacFadyen playing Elizabeth Bennett and Mr. Darcy -- two class-conscious characters that are too proud and too prejudice to admit the romantic feelings they have for the each other.

How We Determine Our Grades

After watching a movie with your children or students, we encourage parents and teachers to look for education opportunities to teach with movies. Here are a few discussion topics that can help with lesson plans or teaching in the home.

We often think of pride as the problem of upper-class people. Is it limited to those with possessions or wealth? What characters in this film have prideful attitudes? How does it affect the way they see others?

First impressions can be powerful. What conclusions does Elizabeth make about Mr. Darcy based on their initial meeting? Why is he so somber? What makes her change her attitude about him? How do Mr. Darcy’s feelings change about Elizabeth and her family?

What reasons does Elizabeth’s friend give her for marrying the preacher? What part does romantic love play in the success of a marriage? What other qualities are important?
