WHAT’S IT ABOUT?
As with any version of Jane Austen’s beloved classic, young Elizabeth Bennett (James) finds herself in a war of social classes as she tries to win the heart of esteemed bachelor Mr. Darcy (Riley)… but when a zombie epidemic suddenly overwhelms 19th century England, Elizabeth and her allies find themselves in a different kind of war, one that could spell the end of the human race…
