Cast

Acting was okay. Chemistry was lukewarm. But I liked how it stayed true mostly to the novel. Cute twists on characters to bring it to modern day. I wish they would have done something less predictable with the styling. See Crazy Rich Asians. Can somebody invest some real money to make an all back cast Pride and Prejudice? I would love to see that.

Some personal observations/pet peeves: when we are first introduced to the Bennett girls, we’re presented with a lovely array of darker-skinned women. Jane Bennett, noted in most adaptations and the book, as the sweetest, most genteel, and most beautiful of the daughters, is played by a light-skinned actress. Not at all trying to take anything away from Raney Branch’s looks. But yet again, the casting feeds into the narrative that light-skinned women are the epitome of black beauty and set the ideal standard of manners and character. Why wasn’t the stereotypical “hood rat” Lydia, cast as a light-skinned actress as well? Finally, an agenda, even done as a throw-away one-liner, is still an agenda. Some people just want to watch a movie. (Source: www.amazon.com)

Star

Pride and Prejudice: Atlanta stars Jackee Harry (Sister, Sister) as preacher’s wife Mrs. Bennet, the author of a self-help book on how to find the perfect husband. Because of this, she isn’t pleased that her own daughters — Lizzie (Hit the Floor‘s Tiffany Hines, Jane (Being Mary Jane‘s Raney Branch), Mary (The Purge‘s Brittney Level), Lydia (Growing Up Hip Hop: Atlanta‘s Reginae Carter) and Kitty (newcomer Alexia Bailey) — remain single. That’s when Mrs. Bennet happens upon the oh-so-eligible Will Darcy (Empire‘s Juan Antonio), whom she tries to match with eldest daughter Lizzie. Reginald VelJohnson (Family Matters) also stars as family patriarch Reverend Bennet.

Lifetime has also ordered the movie Very Valentine, based on Adriana Trigiani’s Valentine Trilogy books, which follows a family-owned shoe store in Greenwich Village on the brink of financial collapse. Kelen Coleman (Big Little Lies) stars as Valentine Roncalli, the granddaughter of master artisan Teodora Angelini (played by Nip/Tuck‘s Jacqueline Bisset), who steps up to save the family business.
