If not taken too seriously, this foray into Pride and Prejudice is delightful. It's genuinely entertaining to watch well known and loved characters adopt wills of their own. Jemima Rooper as Amanda is spot on, as she struggles to speak and conduct herself in accordance with Regency mores. Elliot Cowan makes a fine Mr. Darcy, although at times he seems to be channeling Heathcliff instead, and Tom Mison as Mr. Bingley threatens to upstage Darcy at several points. Supporting cast members are equally true to form. The scenery is stunning, and costumes reflect proper period detail, despite their rather muted colors.
Lost in Austen is a sweet, frothy romance that pays tribute to the original while providing a throughly modern twist. A pleasant way to while away a rainy afternoon.
This is the ultimate fantasy: girl hates her life, wishes for romance and adores Jane Austen, and somehow gets stuck in the novel herself. She is sucked into the daily life of the characters as they go through the events in the novel right from when Charles Bingly moved into Netherfield Park. Of course, this isn't real Austen. Our heroine does more damage than she intends, and Charles Bingly falls in love with her instead of Jane. Her actions totally throw the story of the novel out of sequence, leaving the audience to wonder how anything will ever be straightened out.
Ever since I first read Pride and Prejudice, I wished that I could be Elizabeth, and I thought of many different ways the novel could go. What if I could convince Mr. Collins to marry Mary Bennett? What if I managed to get Wickham to fall for Caroline Bingly? What if Charlotte Lucas married Colonel Fitzwilliam? There are so many different endings, and this is a wonderful way to imagine yourself in Elizabeth Bennett's shoes. I do hope they make more like this!
I admit that I spent an entire rainy afternoon and evening watching this miraculous TV show. I hoped it would never end!

We love all things Austen and this was a quirky little take on an Austen classic. Its not for everyone because it involves fantasy but it was cute.Published 1 month ago by ReeBee
Got for my mom for her birthday and she liked it. However, once I began watching it with my mom the story just rambled on and on and on. Other then that it was good.Published 2 months ago by Tina Wyatt
