Superb, funny adaptation,
This review is from: Northanger Abbey [DVD]  (DVD)
This captures all the comedy of the book beautifully - it is perhaps the broadest of Austen's comedies but also shows a fondness for the gothic romances and for the teenagers who are (still!) besotted by them (see Twilight, etc.). In this version we cut to the scenes of Catherine's imagination: camp, swooning romantic adventures - that she snaps out of, before finding herself in a real-life version of one that is just as dark. Both leads are delightful. Carey Mulligan is a hoot.
