Feels a bit compressed but still a good version of the Austen story.

Not my favorite version, but the essence of the story is still there.

Oh what a nice movie! Can it ever get any better than a good Jane Austen story? So romantic...even though I found it completely frustrating that it took them until the last 6 min. of the movie to finally get together. This should have been called Frustration..lol. At least on my part. But thank goodness all went perfectly well at the end. Yay!

The perfect Austen adaptation for me. The best of ITV1's Austen season. I really loved this one a lot. Of course Rupert-Penry Jones is in it, so what's not to like? Possibly the only adaptation which comes close to pride and prejudice.



THIS IS AVALIBLE ON YOUTUBE TO WATCH. I HIGHLY RECOMEND THAT YOU WATCH IT ASAP
