What I’m Loving Now: The Lizzie Bennett Diaries
Hey there guys. I’m posting this in hopes of upping the awesomeness quotient of your following days.
Introducing… THE LIZZIE BENNETT DIARIES.
(above: Ashley Clements as Lizzie Bennett)
It’s an online modernization of our well loved Jane Austen novel, Pride & Prejudice told vlog-style by none other than Hank Green (you know, John Green’s brother?) and Bernie Su. Yes, yes, I know there are tons of interpretations of P&P over the last century but this fresh take of Lizze Bennett and the rest of the characters is plain amusing and also, makes sense in a way, and I’m sure your day/s (depending how hooked you are on this web series) will be filled with pleasure. The acting is so uncanny and fun, and you will find yourself hating some characters and rooting for some (Lydia was such a surprise, just wow).
Lydia played by Mary Kate Wiles doing her trademark adorbs with the displeased Lizzie looking warily.
There are so many fun elements like the costume theatre that makes the storytelling better, albeit biased with Lizzie’s point of view. And of course, you will get your fill of shrill-inducing shrieks from Mr. Darcy and Bing Lee (smart use!). I’m gonna stop yapping and let you be the judge of it all.
