Pride & Prejudice References in Pop Culture

Image
I've always (or rather mostly) either read or hear a P&P reference in other non-P&Pbooks, in movies, magazines, reviews, or celebrities mentioning Pride and Prejudice/Jane Austen.

I thought I'd post here aboutP&P, the most popular Jane Austen novel, the miniseries, P&P (2005) movie or any of the P&P characters (ie. Elizabeth & Darcy) that were referenced a lot in books, magazines, movies, reviews, etc...

Here are just some of the many references I've compiled here to share with you all, which I've actually first posted here. If you have any to share. Feel free to comment and post here as well. I'd love to add them here. Thanks in advance.

More HQ An Education Trailer Screen Caps

Image
Here are the next 83(out of a total of 133) of the rest of HQ screen caps ofAn Education starring Carey Mulligan and Rosamund Pike, I've capped and uploaded to add here.

Anyone excited to see this movie? I know I am (even more after seeing the awesome trailer) and can't wait! It would be so interesting to see Carey on a leading role (after seeing her in a small role on her big screen debut in P&P) and her P&Pco-star/friendRosamund co-starring with her again and supporting her in this film.

Once again...

For those of you who missed the latest news/updates here on An Education...
