If there’s something we want to leave behind, it’s the tragic events of March. Because we have to keep on living. It might not be much, but it’s a good start. At the BIFFF we have our very own miracle solution: the premiere of Pride and Prejudice and Zombies as the opening of this 34th edition.
In 19th century England, young ladies from good families were extensively taught how to behave themselves in higher circles. After a zombie epidemic, self-defense against the undead was added to the curriculum. Mr. Bennet, the proud father of five daughters, has trained his offspring in using a wide array of weapons to fend off foul smelling suitors. The world might be ending, but if you can’t find a suitable and preferably rich husband for your daughter, you will be a disgrace to society. And that is Mrs. Bennet’s job. She wants to marry her eldest, Elizabeth, to their new neighbor, the slimy vicar Mr. Collins. But Lizzie has her eyes on the handsome soldier George Wickham. And then there’s rich but insufferable Mr. Darcy, who’s also keen on Elizabeth. Plenty of romantic entanglements, but you can be certain zombies will mess up any possible wedding.
