2005 Pride and Prejudice And Brunch At Alamo Drafthouse
One of the most beloved retellings of the classic Jane Austen book Pride and Prejudice will be coming to El Paso. The 2005 movie starring Kiera Knightley as Elizabeth Bennet and Matthew Macfadyen as Mr. Darcy was very successful at the box office when it was released and got four Academy Awards nominations. It also made millennials swoon over Macfadyen and Jane Austen cool again.
If you don't know the story it's centers on a family of five girls who, in 1812, need to find rich husbands. Elizabeth and Darcy meet but both of them are hard headed and the dance around each other, literally and figuratively, until they finally fall in love and live happily ever after. There is a lot of Regency era clothing and intrigue and a lot of things that girls and women had to put up with back then that will make women in 2021 cringe. However, it is a great way to introduce really good literature to young girls and show them just how far women really have come in their quest for equality.
Oh and the dresses are super pretty. And the scenery is very swoony as well. It really is a great movie and you can also get brunch while you watch the movie. Munch on Egg BLT, French Toast, or Breakfast Tacos and sip on a brunch cocktail like Desert Spring Water or the Italian 75.
