But I will also be focusing on underlying traits that come around the surface when looking closely. pride [prahyd] Show IPA noun, verb, prid·ed, prid·ing. noun 1. a high or inordinate opinion of one’s own dignity, importance, merit, or superiority, whether as cherished in the mind or as displayed in bearing, conduct, etc. […] Now how is this character-trait projected throughout the language of film? Upon the first time we meet Darcy at the first ball, we are given a few visual clues in the first shot: Mr. Darcy’s back is the first thing we see of him.
There is an extreme backlight that shows us only the silhouette of the man. This gave me the mysterious feeling of a character we did not know until now. It is a medium shot – slightly tilted from above. To represent pride, the angle needs to be condescending towards the ‘lower class’. This happens perfectly when Darcy stops walking and is ‘higher’ or ‘taller’ than everyone in the venue. We can feel him feeling raised above anyone else. Moving forward to the shot where we can see the front of Mr. Darcy. The medium shot stays and he is still taller than everyone else.
The first close-up we get is after Mr. Darcy sees Elizabeth for the first time. The camera moves with him and the lighting is soft, representing that she could be his soft spot. As Mr. Darcy watches the dance commence, he stands in the shadows. Still tall, but slightly hidden away. This because he is a shy person and with his pride aside, he would like to disappear into the background. Also when Mr. Bingley talks to Elizabeth and Jane, Mr. Darcy is found in the background, darkened by light and blurred. This entire scene is shot inside, which reflects that Darcy is an inside person.
ter> Overcoming Pride and Prejudice through Maturity and Self- Understanding Jane Austen, born in Steventon, England, in 1775, began to write the original manuscript of Pride and Prejudice, entitled First Impressions, which was completed by 1797, but was rejected for publication. The work was rewritten around 1812 and published in 1813 as Pride and Prejudice. During Austens career, Romanticism ...
He keeps in the dark, making him resentment towards attention. After the scene he could be seen as a vile, arrogant man. ——————- Scene two The second scene I’ve used for this analysis the one of the last scenes with Mr. Darcy: the meadow scene. The first shot we see of him is a medium shot of him walking towards the camera. He is off-centered and there is a mystical, natural, light coming from the sunrise. The camera angle doesn’t make him look big anymore. It makes it look like he seems to have peace with the fact that he is just a man.
The light gets brighter as the sun rises behind Mr. Darcy and could be seen how the revelation Elizabeth is having about him rises. Being outside instead of inside like he was the first time we met him, stands how he turned from the closed person he was to the open person he is now. At the end Elizabeth and Mr. Darcy stand together with the sun fully risen – indicating a new day and a new start for this new couple. Mr. Darcy is now everything but arrogant and is seen as the hero; a kind selfless man. ——————- Comparison
Binary Oppositions: Back – Front When meeting Mr. Darcy the first time, we are introduced to his back. This representing his closed personality. At the end however – we see him walking towards the camera. He’s no longer disappearing in closure, but open. Inside – Outside The decor is also important in watching Mr. Darcy evolve from what he is at the beginning of the movie and what he turns out to be in the end of the movie. In the beginning he is closed, locked up – and that is reflected in the closed ball-room. He is inside, so is his personality.
At the end he has become more open: he is outside. He dares to share his feelings in the open sky (this reflecting to another scene where he declares his love to Elizabeth outside in the rain).

This thought could represent Mr. Darcy’s fear of being locked up and he prefers to clear his mind out in the open. Artificial light – Natural light The ballroom scene is completely shot inside a house with artificial lights coming from chandeliers, giving it a bit of a gloomy feeling. The light is forced, and so is Mr. Darcy when he comes to the ball by his friends the Bingleys.
The gloomy light also gives him opportunity to hide in the shades. When he is out in the open he comes at free will to Elizabeth. And the sun rising is a natural movement. The sun lightens the entire meadow – leaving no spot for Mr. Darcy to hide. ——————- Conclusion In the beginning Mr. Darcy was a closed man – shown by keeping him inside and in the dark. Camera-angles portray him as a man who sees himself bigger than everyone. The setting is inside and the light is forced, creating dark spaces where he can hide. Mr.
