So, where does this topic come from? The other day a friend and I were talking about Jane Austin movie adaptations and she said without a doubt the best one was the BBC version of "Pride and Prejudice". Now, I happen to like both versions, both the BBC and the Keira Knightly versions. I also happen to LOVE "Mansfield Park" and "Emma", so of course I tweeted, asking people what Jane Austin movie was their favorite? Only one of your responded, other then the person who I was talking to and so I thought I'd ask the question in a bigger setting.
So here goes, what is your favorite movie based on a Jane Austin novel?! Are you a firm lover of "Pride and Prejudice", or do you love the underdogs as much as I do?
Here's a reminder of the films (that I know of)
"Sense And Sensibility"
Or modern versions like "Clueless"
There's the list I came up with. Which also strikes another question. Which are better the BBC versions or the American versions? Or does it differ for you depending on the movie?
Clarification: I still love "Pride and Prejudice", I just also enjoy some of the underdog flicks as well. So, let's talk about our favorites and BBC vs American versions! I'm excited about this! And did I leave any movies out? Bring them up in comments if I did.
