This dramatic adaptation of Jane Austen's first novel wryly dramatizes the disparity between the heroine's fantasy world of Gothic romance and mystery and the real world of England in the 1800s. It also captures Austen's incomparable irony and acerbic comment in witty dialogue and narration.
"It is impossible not to be caught up in both the romance and the fun of it. Francis's wit and taste are so nicely in tune with Austen's." - London Evening Standard
