Director and Oscar Nominated actress (for her Elizabeth Bennet role in P&P movie, which was directed by Wright) worked together in Focus Features' critically acclaimed and award winning Pride & Prejudice and Atonement films. Also, JW directed KK in her Coco Mademoiselle Chanel commercial and Women's Aid - Domestic Violence Ad 2009 PSA commercial.

One of our Bennet girls, Talulah Riley (Mary Bennet) has a cameo role in this movie as a Concept Car Spokesmodel.

Image

A weird teaser traileralong with an interesting movie poster (see it to your left) was released last year.
