All Things Austen: Lost in Austen

4 Apr

What would happen if you were suddenly transported into your favorite book?  That’s what happens when Amanda Price finds herself in the Pride and Prejudice. After another unsatisfying date with boyfriend Michael, Amanda finds Elizabeth Bennett examining her bathroom.  Amanda has been dreaming of a time when manners mattered and love was romantic.  Elizabeth shows up and shows Amanda the door (literally) into the world of Austen. The result is an often laugh out loud good time with enough P&P for the true Austen fan.  Amanda’s presence throws enough monkey wrenches into the story that the original plot lines become hopelessly lost.  She tries her best to make the story come out the way Jane Austen wrote it.  Originally a mini-series on BBC television, Lost in Austen is available on DVD.  This mini-series is a lot of fun and a must watch for any devotee of Pride and Prejudice.
