    I’m with you on Persuasion being my favorite of her novels, but I’m going to have to disagree on needing a “well-casted” remake. Those Royal Shakespeare actors are terrific in a kind of grittier, “not Hollywood” way, as is the whole production. Amanda Root in particular is amazing as Anne—she really does capture her fragility, her strength, and how she slowly blossoms.

      Exactly what I was going to say. Along with a plug for The Jane Auten Book Club (both book and movie). Go Jane!

    I also loved Lost in Austen – which was a miniseries I think on the BBC – so fun! This movie actually made me pick up Jane Austen again, which I hadn’t done since college.

    Have read “Eligible?” It’s a modern adaptation of P&P set in Cincinnati. Not bad 😀

      Sunny, I listened to it on CD. It was light and fun – just what I was in the mood for at the time and I enjoyed the takeoffs on Pride & Prejudice.
