Ten to one they won’t include very much of her. They’re barely including Lydia enough, so what do you really think they’ll do with Mary?
As much as I like The LBD, like all versions of P&P it really does always come down to Lizzie, Lizzie, Lizzie… Just once, and in this retelling particularly. I’d like to know what’s going on with Lydia. Not just a brief humorous look at her character, but something that really shows what’s going on with her.
Argh. It really isn’t that I dislike the other characters, I don’t. It’s just tiring not seeing more of characters like Lydia and Mary.
I don’t know what the threshold of “include very much of her” is considering I feel we’ve done more for the Lydia Bennet character at this point in the story than any other filmed adaptation ever. But I’ll warn everyone that I would not mirror this bet. ;)
Thanks for watching.
