A brave and inventive use of the drama-doc format
15 August 2003 | by (London) – See all my reviews

The life of Jane Austen is hardly the stuff of high drama - eschewing romantic liaisons and social life and preferring to stay home like some old-before-her-time puritan matriarch. However, this wonderful drama doc, which benefits from perfect casting and a subtle, gentle approach to editing and camera work, makes perfect use of what dramatic events did occur in the life of our favourite literary spinster.
