The TV movie
We all need a bit of fairy dust on our grey lives from time to time and watching this lovely TV movie helped my mood like a touch of magic wand last night. So romantic!
In this modern day spin on “Pride & Prejudice,” inspired to Teri Wilson's 2013 novel, Elizabeth Scott (Cindy Busby), is fishing for direction in her life and gets the opportunity to professionally show her Cavalier King Charles Spaniel in a fancy New York dog show. Dog show judge Donovan Darcy (Ryan Paevey) comes across as aristocratic and rude and a chain of misunderstandings unfold during the competition, complicating their mutual attraction. In true Jane Austen fashion, Elizabeth and Donovan begin to see the error of their ways and it turns out Mr. Darcy is far more kind and interesting than Elizabeth ever imagined.
Then he is almost charming, despite all his flaws, and Elizabeth just can't resist him. But their mutual attraction will find obstacles to overcome: not only Darcy's Aunt Violette and wife - to -be, Felicity, but also Darcy's own pride and Elizabeth's prejudices against wealthy people.
However, their love for puppies and dogs will help them to find a compromise ...
