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) 

Supported by the Virginia Commission for the Arts and the National Endowment for the Arts
