29 When the Netherfield party enters the Meryton ball, how does the crowd react?
Answer: Everyone turns, stops dancing and watches them silently.

The crowd is too preoccupied with dancing to notice when the party first enters and just keep on dancing. Soon after they enter, the crowd turns around, whilst dancing, and sees the party. The crowd stops dancing and the music stops playing, everything is silent. The crowd watches and waits for something, though nobody knows quite what. Nobody knows what to do, as they have never had such guests as these. Finally, Sir William Lucas steps forward to greet them, and the party walks to the other side of the hall. The music then restarts and everyone starts dancing again.

34 Who says "We are all fools in love"?
Answer: Charlotte Lucas

Charlotte says this when speaking to Lizzy about Bingley's regard for Jane at the Netherfield ball. She advises that Jane should move fast and "snap him up" in order to secure herself an engagement. Her reason being that Bingley does not know her shy, modest character as well as Lizzy does and he may perceive her shyness as indifference.

Chatsworth House is in Derbyshire and is the home of the Duke and Duchess of Devonshire. It is a truly stunning house with beautiful grounds.

47 "Mr. Wickham is blessed with such happy manners, he is sure of making friends wherever he goes. Whether he is good at retaining them is less certain." Who says this?
Answer: Mr. Darcy

Mr. Darcy says this to Elizabeth at a ball whilst they are dancing. Lizzy is still under the impression that Mr. Darcy is awful and proud and Mr. Wickham is a good person. She begins talking about him at a ball, to see Mr. Darcy's reaction.
48 What is Mr. Wickham's reason for wishing to elope with Georgiana Darcy?
Answer: for money

Mr. Wickham wishes to elope with Georgiana to receive some financial security. There is no real regard for her, of course, and when he is told that he will not receive a penny of the thirty-thousand pounds she is to inherit, he disappears. Georgiana is devastated. Of course, this is told to Elizabeth through Mr. Darcy's letter, and the actual event is not seen in the movie, it is only heard of. What a dreadful affair!
49 Lizzy's youngest sister, Lydia, is played by a young American actress. Which one?
Answer: Jena Malone

Lydia is only fifteen years old - Jena was 20 when she played the role. However, the film did capture a lot of the silliness of teenage girls much better than previous adaptations. Though it's still hard to see what Wickham ever saw in her.

Answer: Mrs. Bennet

She is yet again going to faint!
