The arrival of the wealthy Mr Darcy in the neighbourhood causes great excitement within the Bennet family.

Judging him on first impressions and the malicious gossip of friends, she rejects his advances. However, as she busies herself with the stormy romances and scandals of her sisters, she once again finds herself in his company. Gradually her opinions of this proud young man begin to change.
