I just realized there’s a hole in this blog’s depiction of me because I have only very slightly mentioned my love for Jane Austen before, so you should probably prepare yourself for some future time in which I explain how brilliant she was and try to convince you to read annotated versions of her books so you see what I mean. She was smart, funny, feminist, and invented the rom-com. What’s not to love?
Until then, I’ll just say: This trailer for Pride and Prejudice and Zombies looks great. It just might be a nice balance of challenging expectations for women’s roles in society in the time period with some zombies thrown in. I’m hopeful and looking forward to it now that I’ve seen this. It’ll be fun, at least.
