About the Movie
Academy Award®-nominee Felicity Jones (The Theory of Everything, Rogue One: A Star Wars Story) stars as romance addict Catherine Morland in Jane Austen's gentle parody of gothic fiction. Upon her first visit to Bath, Catherine finds herself immersed in a world of elaborate balls and handsome men, and forms a close friendship with the vivacious Isabella Thorpe (Academy Award® nominee Carey Mulligan, An Education). When invited to a medieval country house that appeals to her most lurid fantasies, Catherine forms a bond with the younger son on the estate, Henry Tilney (JJ Feild, Austenland), but their budding romance is mysteriously cut short.
A Fantastic Adaptation
This is one of my favorite adaptations ever, Austen or otherwise. It's sweet, funny and perfectly cast -- Felicity Jones and Carey Mulligan before they were famous! -- and this version gives Catherine a hilarious fantasy life that is completely in line with the character's obsession with gothic novels. The ending is a bit too abrupt (though very happy) but the rest of this fantastic production makes up for it. I'm so glad this is finally available as a digital download!
Love this movie!
I have been waiting for this movie to come out on iTunes for a long time! I love the cast. This is one that matches the book completely. Any Jane Austen fan would love this.
