    Movie Review: ‘Pride and Prejudice and Zombies’

    English tea and zombies. What do the two have in common? Nothing at all. And yet in the movie “Pride and Prejudice and Zombies,” it’s practically related.

    It seems amazing to me now just how much can happen in so little time. At this time last year, I was a person with a vision impairment who had resigned himself to a job as a package assembler in a sheltered workshop working for piecework wages. This place hired me almost five years ago when no one else would, and, having been away from my college training for so long, I was convinced that it would be the only place that would ever want me.
