The successful Mrs. Bennett is determined to get her daughters married well. Jane, Elizabeth, and Lydia are girls in a period when a woman’s one possible career is matrimony. To be a wife was a success. Anything else was a failure. Jane and her Mr. Bingley and Lydia with her Mr. Wickham are quite content with things as they are, but not Elizabeth! She actually refuses to marry Mr. Collins, whom she openly deplores, and Mr. Darcy, whom she secretly adores. It’s a duel between Elizabeth and her pride, and Darcy and his prejudice. Each gives in before the evening is over and pride and prejudice meet halfway.
