“They don´t really touch. Women don´t shake hands with men. So the first time Darcy touches Elizabeth is when he helps her into the carriage. Wich is a really beautiful moment. Because it´s the first skin-on-skin touch.
I think today, we don´t think twice about that at all. I shake people´s hands, I give them a kiss, whatever. It´s interesting to think, if you don´t have that tactile nature, how important one touch can be.”
