I was lucky enough to go to my first advance screening ever — for Pride & Prejudice & Zombies, based on the Quirk Books classic parody of the Jane Austen novel.
The greatest strength in the movie, and the number one reason to watch it, is the Bennet sisters. Elizabeth’s relationship with Jane — displayed gloriously during an underground sparring battle-meets-sisterly relationship discussion — is a highlight of the movie, and when the five sisters slay unmentionables at a Meryton ball together? Probably one of the most fun scenes in the movie, period. Lily James is fantastic as Elizabeth Bennet, and Bella Heathcote is possibly my favorite Jane Bennet of all.
