    Creative Notes:
    I have dreamed of making a modern take on Jane Austens Pride and Prejudice for years and finally was able to it during the summer of 2010. I filmed the entire novel a six hour version and we finished the rough cut of the 2 hour version. The film still has mansions, language, society and manners of a period film but with a modern twist.
