I wanted to review the other three adaptations I saw for the first (and hopefully last) time this month. Sadly, nothing in this batch stood out as something I’d revisit. Here’s part one, if you missed it.
I managed to watch 5 new-to-me Austen-related movies/shows this month and figured I’d do a recap of each. My thoughts are rather lengthy, so I’ve split this into two parts.
Note: I expected this movie to be in the same vein as the 2005 version of Pride and Prejudice and the 1995 version of Sense and Sensibility. However, it wasn’t. In preparing to post the review I wrote right after watching the film, I found that Wikipedia describes the movie as “loosely based on Jane Austen’s novel of the same name…the film differs sharply from the original novel in many respects.” Had I known that going in, perhaps my expectations would have been lower and my review different.
You can read my review and a general synopsis of the book here – or just Google the plot.
