She is shown to awaken to the fact that she is a sexual being who has entered the marriage market and that life is not a game anymore but a sometimes unpleasant matter just like the muddy stockyard behind her.
Despite its deterministic tone — due to the muddy stockyard, animals and their symbolism in the film — Romanticism dominates the adaptation, which is evident from the poster already. Of two horizontally laid pictures, on the top one we see Elizabeth in the foreground with her head turned towards Darcy portrayed in the background approaching in the mist.
The bottom picture shows a female figure in the background walking alone in the field; she is all alone, a small figure next to the only tree in the picture. The photo is a still from the film and represents Elizabeth on her way to Netherfield to see her ailing sister.
Images evoking the aesthetic trends of Classicism and Romanticism are often presented alongside within the same shot to highlight the contrast between characters and setting.
At Netherfield Park for instance, Elizabeth is in contrast with the house Bingley rents and which embodies Classicism. She enters with muddy hems, in her brown coat with her brown hair loose in a house in which even servants are perfectly clad and wear wigs.
The breakfast room where Darcy and Miss Bingley are sitting has marble columns, light blue walls and chairs and only the necessary furniture, everything implying order. Also, the sitting room, in which they have the conversation on accomplished women, contains furniture and furnishing with straight lines and light, delicate colour.
Elizabeth is quite out of place in this room with her gray dress reading a book barely sitting on the couch.
In this version, he resembles a Byronic figure rather than the proud, distant and aloof character readers are accustomed to. From the very beginning he is shown to stand out.
When he first appears in the story, at the Meryton assembly, he stands out already due to his height and awkward behaviour. In the film Darcy is sometimes associated with caged birds that need to find their freedom.
At Rosings, when visiting his aunt, he is shown around caged birds suggesting that he has to set himself free from his constriction. In the first proposal scene in which the tension between Darcy and Elizabeth reaches its climax, they look like two caged hawks ready to rip each other apart if not set soon free.
The first proposal is the culmination of their story as socially inept or lonely individuals. The wet environment underlines on the one hand the deterministic feeling suggested by the first part of the film; on the other hand, it represents the frustration both characters shout out of themselves in the scene. Their bitter quarrel is a beautiful visual representation of the end of their loneliness. Thus, the setting alone may insinuate the failure of the proposal, the Classical building is not the environment Elizabeth and Darcy feel at ease in.
As opposed to this, the second proposal takes place in a field at dawn.
Unconventionally dressed - Darcy with his cravat loose and without a waistcoat while Elizabeth is wearing only a coat over her nightgown - they are the embodiment of the Romantic characters. Between sorting everything from the plumbing to the pub, she meets confident, charming Conor and sensible, stubborn Dermot - but who will make her feel really at home? My Opinion I am so glad I read this book as it was an adorable, charming read.
There is no sitting on the fence when it comes to this book I loved the book from the beginning to the middle and the end. We see Darcy change during her time on the Island Tara and this only makes her character more loveable. The other characters that join Darcy on her new adventure on the Island, all bring their own little touch to the story and the community feel to this book is endearing to read. This in my eyes is a very unique storyline and it worked very well. I have to say I am not aware f another book with a similar storyline so it felt like a great fresh read.
I absolutely adored this book and I found it very hard to put down as there were no low points to this book at all. Another charming book.
She is to live on a remote island off Ireland for a whole year to inherit her Aunt's estate. Not only that, she has to convince 14 other people to come and live there too. This seems like a failure from the off, as Darcy is more used to busy city life, high heels, designer clothes, makeup and wine bars.
How could she possibly survive on a remote, desert Darcy McCall is a city girl working for a fashion publication when she is given the challenge by way of her Aunt Molly's last will and testament.
