Did You Know?

The blue-striped dress with long sleeves worn by a housemaid at Chawton Cottage is the same costume worn by Gwyneth Paltrow (Emma Woodhouse) at Hartfield in Emma (1996), by a guest at the Towers in the opening scene of "Wives and Daughters" (1999), and by Mali Harries (Ann Rood) for her wedding in Byron (2003) (TV).See more »
Jane Austen:[Reads to Cassandra from first draft of Persuasion] More than seven years were gone since this little history of sorrowful interest had reached its close;
Jane Austen:She had been forced into prudence in her youth, she learned romance as she grew older: the natural sequel of an unnatural beginning.She had used him ill, deserted and disappointed him; and worse, she had shewn a feebleness of character in doing so, which his own decided, confident temper could not endure. She had given him up to oblige others.
Jane Austen:She hoped to be wise and reasonable in time; but alas! alas! she must confess to herself that she was not wise yet.

Her own story beats her novels!, 31 July 2010
Author: DevikaSethi ( from New Delhi, India

The Austen Industry ensures that almost every year there is a new production of either one of her books, or of films about how us moderns are affected by her work (The Jane Austen Book Club, Lost in Austen)almost two centuries after she lived. This film turns the spotlight away from her characters to the author herself, and does it wonderfully well: we see her as sister, daughter,and aunt, a creature of flesh and blood who is not beyond the occasional infatuation in middle age. Well cast, well acted and all that one expects from a satisfying period drama. For an hour and a half I was transported from monsoonal India to nineteenth century England -- what more can one ask for!
