Austen on Film
It is a truth universally acknowledged that the book is always better than the movie, but what fun we have watching those movies! Jane Austen’s novels have been adapted for television and film since 1938, confirming the fact that bringing Austen’s novels to the small or large screen is not a recent phenomenon. Whether they are faithful adaptations, homages, reinterpretations or modernizations, we love to watch them all – even if we are not always so fond of the finished product as we had wished to be. We are, however, grateful to the producers, writers, directors, actors, and crew who draw attention to the novels of Jane Austen. If you liked the movie, you’ll love the book!
