Harrison Knights gives a quietly charming performance of this queer YA retelling of PRIDE AND PREJUDICE. He portrays Oliver Bennet, a trans boy who just wants to live openly as himself, with a soft voice that sometimes edges into despair but just as often warms with humor. When Oliver meets Darcy on one of the rare nights he's out in London as himself, they form an instant connection. But as they become closer, Oliver struggles with the knowledge that Darcy also knows him as "Elizabeth"--with whom Darcy has no connection to speak of. Knights perfectly captures Darcy's gruffness, Mrs. Bennet's pushiness, and Mr. Bennet's unconditional love for his son. A poignant retelling that will delight Austen fans and newcomers alike.
