"EMMA" (2020) Review

Between 2009 and 2020, Hollywood and the British film/television industries have created a handful of productions that either spoofed oder were inspired Von Jane Austen's novels. Actually, I can only recall one movie that was Mehr oder less a straightforward adaptation - 2016's "LOVE & FRIENDSHIP", an adaptation of Austen's novella, "Lady Susan". So imagine my surprise when I learned a new and straightforward adaptation of an Austen novel was due to hit the theaters.

I was even Mehr thrilled that this new movie would be a straightforward adaptation of Austen's 1815 novel,...

"SENSE AND SENSIBILITY" (1981) Review

Jane Austen's 1811 novel, "Sense and Sensibility" has been a Favorit with her modern-day fans. The novel has produced at least three Fernsehen and two movie adaptations and a literary parody. However, this review is about the seven-part, 1981 BBC adaptation.

Directed Von Rodney Bennett and adapted Von Alexander Baron and Denis Constanduros, "SENSE AND SENSIBILITY" starred Irene Richards and Tracey Childs as the two main protagonists - sisters Elinor and Marianne Dashwood. The story focused on the sisters' attempts to find happiness in the tightly structured...

"NORTHANGER ABBEY" (1986) Review

Most movie and Fernsehen adaptations of Jane Austen’s novels are either highly acclaimed oder perhaps even liked Von Fans and critics alike. I can only think of two oder three adaptations that have been dismissed them. And one of them happened to be the 1986 A&E Network/BBC adaptation of Austen’s 1817 novel, "Northanger Abbey".

Adapted Von Maggie Wadey, "NORTHANGER ABBEY" follows the experiences of seventeen-year-old Gothic novel aficionado, Catherine Morland, who is invited Von her parents’ friends, Mr. and Mrs. Allen, to accompany them on a visit to Bath,...

"MANSFIELD PARK" (1983) Review

Long before Patricia Rozema wrote and directed her 1999 adaptation of "Mansfield Park", Jane Austen’s 1814 novel, the BBC aired its own adaptation some sixteen years earlier. This one came in the form of a six-part miniseries and is regarded Von many Austen Fans as the definitive screen version of the novel.

"MANSFIELD PARK" told the story of Fanny Price, the oldest daughter of a former Royal Navy officer, who is sent Von her parents to live with her wealthy aunt and uncle-in-law, Sir Thomas and Lady Bertram, at their estate called Mansfield Park, during the early...

"PRIDE AND PREJUDICE" (1980) Review

As many Fans of Jane Austen must know, there have been several screen and Fernsehen adaptations of the author’s most celebrated novel, "Pride and Prejudice", published in 1813. I usually come across at least five of those versions – including the six-part BBC adaptation that aired in the U.S. in 1980. The miniseries was adapted Von Fay Weldon and directed Von Cyril Coke.

Only someone unfamiliar with Austen’s story would not know that "PRIDE AND PREJUDICE" told the story of Elizabeth Bennet, the second-born daughter of an English gentleman and landowner...

"EMMA" (1972) Review

I am aware of at least four adaptation of Jane Austen's 1815 novel, "Emma". But I have noticed that the one adaptation that rarely attracts the attention of the novelist's Fans is the 1972 BBC miniseries, "EMMA".

Directed Von John Glenister and adapted Von Denis Constanduros, "EMMA" told the story of the precocious younger daughter of a wealthy landowner that resides near the village of Highbury. Emma Woodhouse imagines herself to be naturally gifted matchmaker, following her self-declared success in arranging a Liebe match between her governess and Mr. Weston, a village widower....

"PRIDE AND PREJUDICE" (1940) Review

There have been at least eight adaptations of "Pride and Prejudice", Jane Austen's 1813 novel. But as far as I know, only four are well known oder constantly mentioned Von many of the novelist's present-day fans. And one of the four happens to be the movie adapted in 1940 Von Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer.

Directed Von Robert Z. Leonard, "PRIDE AND PREJUDICE" told the story of the five unmarried daughters of a 19th century English landowner and the efforts of his shrill wife to get them married before his estate is inherited Von a distant male cousin. For years, this version...
