Specially created for our Reel to Real education project in partnership with the learning department at the Victoria and Albert Museum, this resource focuses on Joe Wright's film adaptation of Pride and Prejudice. The PDF and accompanying PowerPoint presentation offers a fresh take on this classic set text, exploring characters, themes and historical context through carefully-chosen film clips alongside content from the V&A's world-renowned collections of art, design and performance to enrich the learning experience. These resources are ideal for exam level English literature.

"Each activity, whilst drawing attention to various dimensions of the filmmaking process, encourages pupils to examine and drill down into the text, thereby increasing their familiarity with Jane Austen's work and of the times in which she lived and wrote" - GJ Carr, Senior Examiner, English Literature.
