Jane Austen’s Fight Club

This video has been making the rounds of the feminist blogosphere, but as Pride and Prejudice is one of my favorite books of all time, I had to make sure you all saw this.

    Fun fact: this is written and directed by Emily Janice Card, daughter of acclaimed sci-fi author Orson Scott Card (Ender’s Game). She also plays Lizzie (the founder of Fight Club) in the video.

    Can’t wait to see what she comes up with next.

    I can’t get enough of this video. And the fact that it’s been created by Orson Scott Card’s daughter is even better. Love love love.

    That’s fucking awesome. Lizzie is double awesome. I want to see a full version of this.

    What am I missing here? Am I the only one offended by the violence? Aren’t we still fighting for justice across the globe to eliminate violence against women???

      Wild guess: You never watched Fight Club.

      If I’m right, have faith, it’s a fantastic parody of the movie. You’re welcome to dislike it, obviously, but for me and I’d guess most people, the fact it’s a Jane Austen version of one of the biggest dude movies made in the last twenty years- and quite well done at that- vastly outweighs any potential offensiveness.

      If not, and you have seen the movie… I don’t really know what to say.
