    Raynham Hall Presents: Free Outdoor Movie Nights featuring Pride & Prejudice

    For our third 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 beloved novel, Elizabeth Bennet (Keira Knightley) lives with her mother, father and sisters in the English countryside. 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. Although there is obvious chemistry between the two, Darcy’s overly reserved nature threatens the fledgling relationship.

    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.
