This is a great season for Jane Austen fans. While I’m preparing to go the Jane Austen Evening in Pasadena (I will post pictures, if they are not too scary), I’m also really excited about PBS’ The Complete Jane Austen – film versions of all of her novels, including the stellar Pride & Prejudice mini-series with Colin Firth and Jennifer Ehle (the gold standard of Austen adaptations, in my opinion), plus 4 new adaptations. Woohoo! It begins this Sunday the 13th with a new version of Persuasion, and they’ll be showing a different film or part almost every week through the beginning of April. Mark your calendars!
