"Your focus was certainly on marriage from a much earlier age, and that was of course the only option, really. In the beginning of the film they’re talking about these things. They’re talking about men, they’re talking about marriage, they’re talking about things they don’t understand. They think passionately about them every minute of the day, but suddenly their emotions catch up with their minds. I think what you’re watching in this film is girls experiencing these huge feelings for the first time." — Rosamund Pike on Pride & Prejudice (2005).
