Set in the mountains of Southwest Virginia, an unexpected love story emerges in this modern take on Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice. Ben Bennet, a gay, affluent attorney, unknowingly insults Lee Darcy, a welder charged with domestic abuse. The men’s mutual dislike for one another transforms into a quiet friendship after they find common ground. Their companionship becomes increasingly complicated as they confront their prejudices in the face of surfacing love. Discussion with writer-director Byrum Geisler, director of photography Brandon Garza, and assistant director Alex Bice, moderated by Andrea Press (UVA)
