Jane Austen (and Charlotte Brontë, and others)

by ,

I really enjoy Jane Austen stories (and similar) and just ran across the
AustenBlog
wherein I discovered that there are four new adaptations,
one of which is
a “Sense and Sensibility” miniseries.
The others are new movies of
“Northanger Abbey”,
“Persuasion”,
and
“Mansfield Park”.

The IMDB pages those link to are pretty sparse, but I would hope for them to swell with ripe data over time.

I blame the 1995 BBC
“Pride and Prejudice”
miniseries for my interest.
So far, that is the standard to beat.
The 1997 BBC adaptation of Brontë’s
Jane Eyre
came close, and has informed my opinion that a miniseries is the best format for these works.
So I am looking forward to the aforementioned “Sense and Sensibility” miniseries very much indeed.
