Pride and Prej­u­dice and Zom­bies (MA15+) We will never know for sure but chances are Jane Austen would have ap­proved of Pride and Prej­u­dice and Zom­bies. The un­dead, af­ter all, are not in­ter­ested in peo­ple’s good looks or great for­tunes but in their brains, and women’s grey mat­ter is ev­ery bit as val­ued as men’s. How much of your own brain you need to en­gage to take in this adap­ta­tion of Seth Gra­hame-Smith’s pop­u­lar mashup novel is up to you. The par­ody of Austen’s 1813 clas­sic is there to grin at, but I soon stopped try­ing to line up the jokes and just sat back and en­joyed the zom­bie ac­tion. The at­trac­tive cast, light­hearted spoof of a much-filmed novel and zom­bie-mash­ing ac­tion make this an easy en­ter­tain­ment.
