“I have been a selfish being all my life, in practice, though not in principle.”
(“Pride and prejudice”, Chapter 58)
ay, Mr. Darcy aren’t you handsome even when the rain soaks you?
“That was simply because the crowds were getting knackered ! It wasn’t part of the plan. But some of the best ideas happen when something is revealed to you on set in the moment and it all just comes alive, and that was one of those moments. The extras were all getting very tired and hot and we’d been shooting it for a long time, and it occurred to me that maybe we should do a take with only Lizzie and Darcy dancing, and it worked. It’s a contentious moment , some people love that moment, some people don’t at all”.
(Joe Wright, Director)
