When news that Netherfield Park has been sold to Mr. Bingley, Mrs. Bennet immediately sees him as a potential husband to one of her daughters, Elizabeth. Though not as good-looking as Jane. Elizabeth is a good choice to marry this single man with a large fortune because she has more wit than her sisters.
The Bennet ladies learn of Mr. Bingley's good looks and personality at a ball. He brings with him a tall young man, Mr. Darcy, whose handsome, and noble features awe the entire room. They say he is much richer than Mr. Bingley. But their great admiration for him soon disappears as his ill manners are revealed. They see him as the proudest and most disagreeable man in the world.
Meanwhile, Jane is very much admired by Mr. Bingley, while Elizabeth remains indifferent towards Mr. Darcy after overhearing his conversation with Mr. Bingley. Mr. Darcy tells Mr. Bingley that he is not in the mood to dance with women like her who are ignored by other men. When they return home, she promises to never dance with him, saying she could forgive his pride if he has not offended hers.
Soon after the disappointment and a scandal in the Bennet household, Elizabeth discovers how she has misjudged Mr. Darcy unfairly. She now knows better and understands his nature.
