I bought Sense & Sensibility this weekend (the DVD that includes Miss Austen Regrets, not the one that included Persuasion) What can I say, the more I watch it, the more I like it! But Miss Austen Regrets just keeps increasing in my esteem every time I watch it. (And I have watched it over and over and over and over and over…)
It think I can safely say that M.A.R. is probably the winner of the Jane Austen season (of the new productions, I should say), with S&S coming in a very close second. Northanger Abbey is third and Persuasion, fourth (which would have been higher (for Rupert Penry-Jones alone) if not for the ridiculous ending and the awful hair and makeup) And Mansfield Park… I haven’t words sufficiant to tell you how awful I thought it was.
