Friday Night Movie: Pride & Prejudice

Keira Knightley and Matthew Macfayden shine in this movie adaptation of Jane Austen’s most famous work. I really enjoy this story of how ones pride and prejudice gets in the way of relationships both romantic and platonic. Our upbringing can inform and color our views of people which can keep us from realizing the great value of an individual.

Yes I know I am a dude but this stuff is good.
