Double-bill of the films based on the Helen Fielding novels.
In 'Bridget Jones's Diary' we are introduced to Bridget (Renee Zellweger).
She's the 1990s British everywoman: single, weight-obsessed, and very probably drunk on mid-price white wine.
Her life goes from middling to worse when she embarks on a doomed affair with silver-tongued boss Daniel Cleaver (Hugh Grant).
In the background lurks a literal Mr Darcy (Colin Firth), a seemingly cold lawyer who keeps crossing Bridget's path but whose precise intentions seem hard for her to divine.
All the while Bridget records her lurches across life's highway in the eponymous diary, as an attempt to take control of her tragi-comic life.
In Bridget Jones: The Edge of Reason', having finally found the perfect man in gorgeous lawyer Mark Darcy, 30-something ex-singleton Bridget Jones is now faced with the even bigger challenge of keeping him.
When her self-doubts return and her womanising ex-lover Daniel Cleaver reappears uninvited, Bridget gets entangled in a comic mix of bad advice, miscommunications and total disasters that could only happen to her.
