My Favourite Jane Austen TV/Film Adaptations

Hi everyone,

Today I’m going to be talking about some of my favourite TV/film adaptations of Jane Austen’s work. I definitely haven’t watched all of them, just as I haven’t read all of Austen’s books. However, here’s a list of some of my most-loved and most-watched favourites.

#1 Pride and Prejudice (1995 – TV series)

I have only just recently watched this TV series, aired on BBC in 1995. The series stars Colin Firth as Mr Darcy and it is arguably the role that made him famous! The series has 6 episodes and I was hooked from start to finish! The adaptation is true to the original story and the setting is absolutely beautiful.

#2 Pride and Prejudice (2005 – film)

Starring Keira Knightley, Rosamund Pike, Judi Dench and Carey Mulligan, this adaptation definitely has some big stars in it. This was the first ever adaptation of Austen’s work that I saw and it’s stuck with me since! I just can’t help picturing Keira Knightley as Elizabeth Bennet everytime I read Pride and Prejudice now…

#3 Sense and Sensibility (1995 – film)

Written by and starring Emma Thompson (one of my faves!), Sense and Sensibility remains one of my top adaptations of Austen’s work. Besides Sense and Sensibility being one of my favourite novels by Austen, the film adaptation is enchanting, earning its critical acclaim and many awards.

Sister act: Emma Thompson and Kate Winslet in the 1995 film of Sense and Sensibility.

 

So there we have it. Some of my favourite Austen adaptations. I would really love to, and am definitely planning on watching more adaptations in the near-future. With Austen August in full-swing there’s really no excuse!

  1. I have to be honest and say I did not love the version of Pride & Prejudice with Kiera Knightley, but I loved the other two movie adaptations you picked!

    1. I’ve heard a few people who didn’t enjoy it! It’s just personal preference really. There’s so many other great options of Austen adaptations so even if you didn’t enjoy that one, there’s so many others to choose from! It’s great! 🙂
