Masterpiece Theatre 2008 production
Starring: JJ Field and Felicity Jones
"Northanger Abbey" was the first novel that Jane Austen wrote. However, it was the last novel of hers to be published.
I am happy to see that Masterpiece Theater and the BBC remade "Northanger Abbey". The movie is short, but it does follow the book rather well. I especially like the sequences of Catherine Morland's imagination that are woven throughout the movie.
All the actors played their parts well, and overall I am quite pleased with how this version of "Northanger Abbey" turned out. I definitely recommend that you see "Northanger Abbey". While it is probably the least known of all the Jane Austen novels, it is still a must- see / read. "Northanger Abbey" tells us quite a bit about Jane Austen at the time she was writing the story "Northanger Abbey".
Definitely see "Northanger Abbey", especially if you are a Jane Austen fan. You'll enjoy it.
