Available on Blu-ray for the very first time this boxsets contains three classic Austen adaptations:
At 10, Fanny Price goes to live at Mansfield Park, the estate of her aunt's husband, Sir Thomas. Clever, studious, and a writer with an ironic imagination and fine moral compass, she becomes especially close to her cousin Edmund, Thomas's younger son. Fanny is soon possessed of beauty as well as a keen mind and comes to the attention of a neighbor, Henry Crawford. Thomas promotes this match, but to his displeasure, Fanny has a mind of her own, asking Henry to prove himself worthy. As Edmund courts Henry's sister and as light shines on the link between Thomas's fortunes and New World slavery, Fanny must assess Henry's character and assert her heart as well as her wit.
Catherine Moreland (Felicity Jones,) a spirited young beauty from the country, enters into the depraved society of Bath with dreams and fantasies sparked by her love of gothic romance novels. There she meets two men vying for her affection - the dashing and jealous John Thorpe (William Beck) and the gentle and sincere Henry Tilney (JJ Feild). Despite the advice of her mischievous new friend Isabella (Carey Mulligan), Catherine treats neither as more than a dear friend. That is until Catherine accepts an invitation to Northanger Abbey from Henry`s grave and severe father, General Tilney (Liam Cunningham). Her passion for the dark and mysterious feeds her imagination, as tyrannical fathers and diabolical villains work their evil on forelorn heroines trapped in isolated castles, much like Northanger....
An adaptation of Jane Austen's story of marriage and manners set in a picturesque 19th Century village, which revolves around a spoilt young woman, Emma Woodhouse, who delights in influencing the love-lives of her friends, with disastrous results.

The highly regarded Andrew Davies adapted Jane Austen's 1815 novel "Emma" for ITV. Previously, he was the screenwriter for the much heralded 1995 BBC TV serial "Pride and Prejudice" starring Colin Firth and Jennifer Ehle. There is little doubt that this ITV adaptation is far superior to the 1996 "Emma" movie starring Gwyneth Paltrow.
"Emma" is dominated by the superlative performance of the sultry Kate Beckinsale in the title role. She gives a tremendous display of pride, humour and cunning - she is almost too clever for her own good. Samantha Morton is wonderful as Harriet Smith, showing early naivety and gullibility, but emerges strongly through her problems. And Mark Strong is brilliant in his portrayal of the dashing George Knightley - he overflows with energy, decency and wise decision-making.
Wonderful locations were used which brought the film to life, including Broughton Castle in Banbury, Sudeley Castle in Gloucestershire, Stanway House in Gloucestershire,Trafalgar Park in Salisbury, Dorney Court in Buckinghamshire, Lacock in Wiltshire and Thame Park in Oxfordshire. Also, wonderful authentic costumes give at a wonderful period feel.
"Northanger Abbey", also adapted for the screen by Andrew Davies, departs from the novel mainly during the inclusion of dream and fantasy sequences that show what a big impact the reading of gothic horror and romantic novels had on lead character Catherine.Read more ›
