Jane Austen was an English novelist. Her works of beautifully romantic fiction earned her a place as one of the mostly wide read writers in English Literature. Jane Austen passed away at the age of 42 and it seems that the cause of her death still remains unconfirmed.
Jane Austen's timeless classics Emma, Northanger Abbey & Mansfield Park, are exquisitely brought to life (thanks to ITV) in these three lavish and faithful movie adaptations.
EMMA - Kate Beckinsale is Emma Woodhouse, the beautiful, rich, clever and infuriating heroine who likes nothing better than arranging the love lives of other people; often with comic and disastrous results. This classic Emmy Award-winning romantic comedy also features Mark Strong and Samantha Morton.
NORTHANGER ABBEY - Adapted by one of Britains most popular dramatists, Andrew Davies, this sumptuous romance stars Felicity Jones and Carey Mulligan. Catherine Moreland, a spirited young beauty enters into Bath society where she attracts the attention of two men but Catherine's overzealous imagination jeopardises her already fragile social position.
MANSFIELD PARK - Billie Piper stars as Jane Austen's favourite heroine in this delicious tale of virtue and vice. Taken from her life of poverty, Fanny Price is brought up with her rich cousins at Mansfield Park. But the arrival of the glamorous Crawfords soon wreaks havoc on the rural tranquillity of the household.
