Romantic Moment Feature | Lizzy Bennet and Col. Fitzwilliam Darcy

Pride Prejudice and Zombies

Today, I have to confess, an obvious theme is present on Finding Wonderland. The reason being I'm reposting something from Silver Petticoat (because it's an epic moment that has to be duly spotlighted) and secondly, I've finally written a review of said film.

The spotlight feature is, of course, the literary mash-up Pride and Prejudice and Zombies.

FILM REVIEW | Pride and Prejudice and Zombies (2016)

Not only am I resharing this "romantic moment" from the film (which I finally watched), I'm also reviewing the film and for the purpose of archiving (which I'll admit, I'm terribly behind on), I'm re-posting my book review which was published on Silver Petticoat last week. Basically, if you'd like to find all of this zombie content fast, just search the 'Pride and Prejudice and Zombies' tag. It'll all be there.

But this feature is all about the romance - and seriously, no matter how unusual this mash up is, this proposal scene from Darcy (as played by Sam Riley) holds its own. The moment he speaketh the words... no, I won't repeat the words. Instead I'd best let you read about it should you like.

Suffice to say, my fangirl heart was a goner.

Romantic Moment of the Week | Lizzy Bennet and Col. Fitzwilliam Darcy

Pride and Prejudice and Zombies

THE FILM: Pride and Prejudice and Zombies
THE CHARACTERS: Lizzy Bennet (Lily James) and Col. Fitzwilliam Darcy (Sam Riley)
THE MOMENT: Darcy proposes to Miss Bennet

Of all the reincarnations of Jane Austen’s classic love story Pride and Prejudice, perhaps there’s none as creative as that of the literary mash-up Pride and Prejudice and Zombies. Based on the novel (of the same name) authored by Seth Grahame-Smith, and also bearing the name, Jane Austen, today’s romantic moment is from the recently released to DVD film adaptation, which I must confess I wound up adoring.

From here on out, be warned, there will be lots of SPOILERS.

The Lead-In: Lizzy Bennet and Colonel Darcy

This Lizzy Bennet and Darcy pairing are on an even more equal ground than Austen’s classic pits them. There they are matched wit for wit, but here they are equal to one another in their weaponry skills as experts. Their romance is comprised of beginnings that are much the same as Austen’s original, at a ball. It’s there that their eyes first lock and an instant spark of curiosity is born.

Following this, there are unexpected meetings in society, a (literal) sparring proposal, and an eloquent letter in which Darcy says the following:

Pride Prejudice and Zombies Proposal

“Of all weapons in the world, I now know love to be the most dangerous. For I have suffered a mortal wound. When did I fall so deeply under your spell, Ms. Bennet? I cannot fix the hour or the spot or the look or the words which lay the foundation. I was in the middle before I knew I began.” Continue Reading ➔
