There were two great reviews lately of Austen-related movies I love.
The first was from Lori, who reviewed Lost In Austen. She says "The liberties Lost in Austen took with some characters I found horrifying, as I imagine many Austen purists might....I also appreciated that this Jane was showcased very much as Austen's original Jane must have been intended - - without a mean spirited bone in her body. She's just caring enough and devoted enough to her family duty to not come off as a pushover. Her resignation in some scenes is palpable....In short, I felt Lost in Austen was an interesting and, yes, even worthy addition to the library of Austen sequels "

The second review came from Kals and was of the movie Miss Austen Regrets. Kals says:
"To put it simply, this is the best cinematic tribute to Jane Austen that I've seen....The most fascinating thing about this film is the fact that it showcases the personality and character of Jane Austen very close to how I imagined her to be...The cinematography is a visual delight...But what makes this film so amazing is the inherent sincerity with which it has been made."
High praise indeed!
