Pride & Prejudice

Question: What is the dance the actors are dancing at the public ball where Charles Bingley, Caroline Bingley, and Mr. Darcy arrive late? Everyone stops dancing when they appear and then take up where they left off and finish.

Question: Does anyone know the name of the composer who wrote the actual music performed by Lizzie and Georgiana as well as music for the movie itself?

Chosen answer: The composer is called Dario Marinelli, the pianist is Jean-Yves Thibaudet. Marinelli composed the music that Lizzy and Georgiana play. The only thing he hasn't composed is the piece that Darcy and Lizzy dance to at the Netherfield Ball, which is a piece from Henry Purcell.

Question: Why is there an alternative U.S ending (special feature on the UK DVD version)?

Chosen answer: In previews to American audiences there were lots of comments that it was not a good ending (not romantic enough) so they filmed an ending with Darcy and Lizzie kissing to make it more romantic. The ending in other countries matches the original ending of the book.

Question: What are the ages of all the Bennet sisters?

Chosen answer: According to the book, at the beginning, Jane 22, Elizabeth 20, Mary between Elizabeth and Kitty so 18 or 19, Kitty 17, Lydia 15.
