The second instalment of Bridget Jones’s Diary catches up with Bridget in blissful coupledom with Mark D’Arcy. Unfortunately, Bridget manages to complicate this idyllic set-up and before too long they have split up.

The modest charms of Bridget Jones: The Edge of Reason are a triumph of performance, production, and adaptation over the empty-calorie dither of its source material.Entertainment Weekly

DNEG’s Contribution

One of the major sequences that Double Negative produced for the film was the ‘Lonely People’ shot which sees Bridget home-alone in South London gazing wistfully out of her window, the shot pulls back from Bridget passing windows of happy couples – giving a sense that every twinkling light in the London skyline contains a scene of marital or familial happiness.

Double Negative felt that previous realisations of London skylines in miniature and matte painting tended to oversimplify the layout of the city. Instead, the team created a layout representative of the cramped, haphazard London skyline that we see today.

Double Negative worked on several other sequences for the film, including the climactic wedding scene.
