Don’t be an Austen snob, watch this movie!

When Darcy said, “Her face is rendered uncommonly intelligent by the beautiful expression of her dark eyes and I’m forced to acknowledge her figure as both light and pleasing and that her arms are surprisingly muscular yet not so much as to be unfeminine...” I was hooked.
I love Austen and have watched most of the movie/tv adaptations along with reading the original works and other authors’ interpretations/adaptations. If you love Jane Austen books, movies and all things Austen then you must add this movie/book to your collection. They stay fairly true to much of Austen’s writings but with the fun addition of zombies. If you like quirky zombie movies, then have a go at this and maybe you’ll become an Austen fan too.
Lily James did a good job portraying a strong and kick-ass Lizzie Bennet. And Sam Riley was a handsome, brooding and also kick-ass Darcy with nods towards Colin Firth’s portrayal.
