As we all know, the Lizzie Bennet Diaries was an adaptation of Pride and Prejudice.
Some of the choices the Lizzie Bennet Diaries team made were what I would call faithful adaptations, while others were what I consider departures from the book. For example, turning Mr.
Collins’ proposal of marriage into a business proposal was an adaptation of the story, and one that felt completely faithful to the spirit of the book.
I personally feel the same way about Lydia’s scandal being a sex tape instead of an elopement.
By contrast, Lizzie believing that Caroline was truly her friend was a departure from the book.
It made sense for this adaptation, and was the first thing to draw attention to the importance of who knows about and watches the videos and who doesn’t.
However (and this is not a criticism), it was nevertheless a departure from the source material, where Elizabeth saw right through Caroline.
