One of the noted dates in the timeless Pride and Prejudice is Michelmas–more widely known to the rest of the world as September 29 or the day that Mr Collins arrives at Longbourn. This year, we at Fictional Almanac are doing a watchthrough of various P&P editions in the week leading up to it, and you can follow us on twitter under the hashtag #RoadToMichelmas. Editions include:

  • Pride and Prejudice (BBC 1995–the gold standard)
  • The Lizzie Bennet Diaries (free on YouTube!)
  • Pride and Prejudice (2005 with Keira Knightly)
  • Bride and Prejudice (2004–Bollywood!)
  • Pride and Prejudice and Zombies (2016–with zombies!)
  • Pride and Prejudice (1940 with Laurence Olivier)
  • Bridget Jones’ Diary (because it’s close enough)

See you on the road!
