This Spoils the Ending
In the Book In the Movie
   The story takes place in 1813, when the novel was first published. The time frame is the late 18th century.
   Elizabeth is a sweet mannered, intelligent girl with good humor. She is often rude and ill tempered.
   Jane and Elizabeth are open and share all the details of their lives. They keep secrets from each other.
   This never happened. Elizabeth caught Mr. Darcy's eye during the first ball and indicated that they was an attraction between them.
   Elizabeth Mr. Darcy outdoors when the gardener was showing around the garden in Pemberley. A servant told Elizabeth, her aunt and her uncle that Mr. Darcy was not at home and he would come the following day. Elizabeth met Mr. Darcy and his sister the same day in the house.

There's a typo in the author's name, it says Austin while the book cover says Austen.

Thanks 16 Dec anonymous- a bunch of my students used your idea practically verbatim- ignoring fact that Darcy and Lizzie were recently married and rich people in love can wear anything they want on the porch of their estate. I can't stand the laziness these websites promote.

There is also a big difference in the ending; Elizabeth met Darcy outdoor and she was wearing her night garment. At that time people couldn't really go out with their night clothes.
