The Complete Jane Austen
I'm so excited, this Sunday 1/13 kicks off The Complete Jane Austen on PBS.
It starts with Persuasion !! :)
And I've never seen a film version of Northanger Abbey before.
Becoming Jane is not part of the line-up, (that is the one book here I have yet to read), but I put the book in to represent
Miss Austen Regrets, a new biopic, which will be part of the line-up.
Generally speaking movie versions of books tend to disappoint me a little, as they are never the same as the book (I take any alterations a bit personally, and get offended), and also movies never FEEL the same way, the reading of a book does (I tend to watch movies, and live books). But still I can't wait to see these. And every now and then, I do find a movie version of a book that I fall in love with. At any rate I should be able to enjoy these movies in their own right, as different versions of stories I am already so fond of. A little book of matches, lit one after the other, to warm my cold winter self.
