This review is from: Lost in Austen (DVD)
I don't know why I didn't watch this until recently, but I'm glad I finally did.
The premise is a bit weird, it follows Amanda Price a sweet modern woman who loves "Pride and Prejudice". Then one day in her bathroom she discovers Elizabeth Bennet. At first Amanda thinks it's a dream, but soon Elizabeth shows Amanda a door in her bathroom that leads to that other world set 200 years ago.
Amanda steps inside, directly into the hall of the Bennet house, when suddenly the door connecting the two worlds closes shut. So she is stuck in the world of Elizabeth Bennet.
What I liked about this series are the unexpected twists. I liked how all the characters grew throughout the story. I really liked Mr. Wickham in this version. I loved Mr Darcy as he grew throughout the series, he was also the handsomest Darcy I have seen yet. I liked how most of the characters got their HEA by learning to follow their heart, and to shed unfair prejudices and rules. I was glad that Amanda Price got her happy ending too, I was rooting for her.
The one drawback is that the ending felt rushed. They should have added a scene with a montage showing snippets of everyone's life, after they ended up with who they wanted. I also wished they had given Mr. Wickham a love interest.
In the end this was a charming mini-series, a new twist on Pride and Prejudice...funny and romantic
