Pride & Prejudice: A Latter-Day Comedy is a 2003 independent film adaptation of Jane Austen's novel set in modern-day Provo, Utah. The film received mixed reviews, with more negative reviews than positive. Critics accused the film of its poor editing[1][2] and its rough application of the story to modern life.[1][2] Positive reviews praised Kam Heskin's performance as Elizabeth[1][2][3] and enjoyed that the film was "cute".[1][4] Although the film included aspects of LDS culture, most critics agreed that the film's connection with LDS culture was trivial, making the film more universally accessible to viewers.[1][3][4]

References to Jane Austen's novel, Pride and Prejudice[edit]

  • Lizzy's university class is studying Jane Austen
  • There is a portrait of Jane Austen in Darcy's ski cabin
  • Lydia's pug's name is "Austen." A pet pug is also found in Jane Austen's Mansfield Park.
  • The restaurant that Lizzy meets Darcy in is called "Rosings." In the book, Rosings Park is the home of Darcy's aunt, Lady Catherine de Bourgh, and also the place where Elizabeth turns down Darcy's first proposal.
  • Lydia and Jack plan to get married in Las Vegas chapel that has a Scottish theme. In the book, Lydia and Wickham must go to Scotland to marry because they can do so more quickly than they could in England (see Gretna Green Marriage).
  • The girls' residence is on a street called Longbourn. In the book the Bennet estate is Longbourn.
  • In the "more religious" version, Collins refers to his mission president, "President deBourgh," the way Collins refers to Lady de Bourgh in the book.
  • Lydia and Kitty's last name in the film is Meryton, the nearest town to the Bennett estate at Longbourn.
