It is no secret that I am a HUGE Jane Austen fan. I love her novels (in particular Persuasion, and Pride & Prejudice) I also love books inspired by her writing (like "Confessions of a Jane Austen Addict" by Laurie Viera Rigler & all the books by Elizabeth Aston.) When my mind is cluttered with doubt, or things are uncertain I know I can always open these books and feel peaceful.
Lately I haven't had the time to get my "Austen Therapy" that I so desperately have needed. Instead I have popped in a DVD to get my fix. True, it is not the same, but it still brings a smile to my face.
Here is a list of the Austen inspired movies I have seen. PLEASE feel free to tell me if there are any must-sees I have missed. And yes, if you haven't seen these you must :)
Not surprisingly either is the fact that ones made in England by British actors tend to be the best. Especially the BBC specials! I leave you with a short clip from Pride & Prejudice that always brightens my day. (and yes, I've posted this clip before... sorry, it's my favorite!)
be sure to pause the music @ right
au revoir, adieu, ciao, till next time...
