A Movie for Every Jane Austen Novel Written
If you love Jane Austen—and we know you do—you may find yourself wanting more, even after reading her seven novels. Perhaps you've already even read Eligible, Curtis Sittenfeld's contemporary retelling of Pride and Prejudice. But don't worry; we've got options for you. Go on and borrow a film adaptation of every Jane Austen novel ever written.
Mansfield Park (1814)
Mansfield Park may not be one of Austen's best-known works, but it takes on a second life in the movie version written and directed by Patricia Rozema.
Northanger Abbey (1818, posthumous)
The adaptation from Masterpiece Theater features the romance novel afficianado Catherine Morland and shows off Austen's characteristic wit in a different light as she satirizes gothic romance.
Lady Susan (1871, posthumous)
Love and Friendship is based on Austen's most obscure novel, the epistolary narrative Lady Susan. Starring Kate Beckinsale and Chloe Sevingy, it is the most recent edition to the big screen Austen offerings.
