Pride and Prejudice (2005)– At First Glance
At the very beginning of this ball, everybody is completely in awe over the social status of these three. However at the end of the night, Caroline and Charles Bingley are held in a relatively high regard as they know how to interact with people, while Darcy evokes quite a negative response from the community. As the story continues on, we learn that a few of these beliefs are false.
Anyways, I caught this screenshot right here. It’s the first time we see these three up close and I thought it really reflected the true nature of their characters. Bingley looks at ease, with a smile on his face, and we learn at the end that he’s really just all good intentions. Darcy looks as if he’s going to puke at the sight of all these people that he doesn’t know. It’s later revealed that he lacks all social tactfulness. Caroline looks confident. She’s a woman who knows what she wants, and what it takes to get it.
I think this is perfectly well put! I completely agree with the sentiment. Poor Darcy, though! ~S
