Written and directed by Burr Steers (Igby Goes Down), based on Seth Grahame-Smith’s great novel, Pride and Prejudice and Zombies, is a new and surprising adaptation of Jane Austen’s classic novel Pride and Prejudice.
England of the nineteenth century is surrounded by a mysterious scourge. The country is captured by the living dead, ending Victorian lifestyle, pretending English bucolic landscapes in war zones. No one feels safe, and friends turn into wild enemies. Aggressive heroine Elizabeth Bennet, a master of martial arts and weapons, an independent, emancipated and extremely volunteer young woman, enters the scene.
The terrible circumstances of the present force her to ally with Mr. Darcy, a handsome but arrogant gentleman whom she can’t endure but appreciates for his ability to kill zombies. Putting aside personal or social prejudices, Elizabeth and Darcy have to join forces on the battlefield to escape the country from the bloody threat of the zombies.
