This was a very good story. I am not sure how much is truthfully taken from Austen's letters, but if you watch this as you would any other story told by Jane Austen you are sure to enjoy it.

It amazes me how much power and influence people can have in other lives. We're not talking people in powerful positions but every day individuals. Even the most subtle word, opinion or action can change the whole direction of a person's existence. People usually do not think of this and the ones who do often make the choice to use that power in a negative way. Jane Austen did not realize how much she influenced her niece and the outcome was portrayed negatively however do we really know whether or not Fanny's life turned out worse? As to her regrets, I do believe she had some as many people do but she was ultimately happy with what her life had been. Or at least it seemed that way.
