Alyson and Ria Carrogan (host of Femme on Film, Pop Guerrilas and founder of the Femme On Collective) talk about the HAND FLEX from Joe Wright’s film adaptation of Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice (watch the scene here on YouTube here) starring Keira Knightley as Elizabeth Bennett and Matthew MacFadyen as Mr. Darcy. They talk about how this is the sexiest non-sexual scene in the world, thank you female gaze! And how they appreciate watching a scene and a movie that taps into the mystery of attraction. And of course, they can’t help but fangirl out a bit on Jane Austen. We’re guessing they’ll be a full episode of Femme on Film devoted to this very movie sometime soon.
Come have a listen!
