Sparks fly in Pride & Prejudice when spirited Elizabeth Bennett meets single, rich, and proud Mr. Darcy. But Mr. Darcy reluctantly finds himself falling in love with a woman beneath his class.

Handsome, clever, and rich Emma Woodhouse is a restless queen bee without rivals in her sleepy little town. In Emma, the glittering satire of social class and the pain of growing up is showcased, as Emma must adventure through misguided matches and romantic missteps to find the love that has been there all along. The all-star cast includes Anya Taylor-Joy, Bill Nighy, Josh O'Connor, Miranda Hart, and Johnny Flynn. This film is rated PG and has a running time of 124 minutes. Watch the trailer here!

In Sense and Sensibility, penniless Elinor and Marianne Dashwood—two sisters with very different perspectives on life and love—keep one another in line in Regency-era England as they give each other support through death, hardship, love, and friendship. The all-star cast includes Emma Thompson, Kate Winslet, Hugh Grant, Alan Rickman, and Greg Wise. This film is rated PG and has a running time of 136 minutes. Watch the trailer here!
