As the eldest, she faces mounting pressure from her parents to marry. When the outspoken Elizabeth is introduced to the handsome and upper-class Mr. Darcy (Matthew MacFadyen), sparks fly.

    Raynham Hall Presents: Free Outdoor Movie Nights featuring Emma

    For our final installment of our Jane Austen Film Series, we are screening Joe Wright‘s, Pride & Prejudice, on Thursday, August 4 at 8:30 p.m. In this adaptation of Jane Austen’s classic novel, socialite Emma Woodhouse (Gwyneth Paltrow) entertains herself by playing matchmaker for those around her. Her latest “project” is Harriet Smith, an unpretentious debutant, while Emma herself receives the attentions of the dashing Frank Churchill (Ewan McGregor). However, Emma’s attempts at matchmaking cause more problems than solutions and may ultimately jeopardize her own chance at love and happiness.
