PRIDE & PREJUDICE & GAYS
A short film and proof of concept
This satirical queer adaptation of Jane Austen’s “Pride & Prejudice” follows the perspective of Darcy, a proud, rich, and austere woman who is determined to win the spirited Lizzy Bennet’s hand despite the objections of Darcy’s class-conscious aunt, Lady Catherine. Gender swaps. Gays. Drag. Victorian glamour with a post-modern flare.
