Let down by Bridget Jones characterisation
on 29 March 2017
Could have been so much better. The 'modern girl' lost happens to be a fairly silly and crass character (think Bridget Jones). . .someone you'd struggle to believe as being a fan of Austen in the first place - more a Fifty shades fan I would have thought. . . I found her difficult to identify with, which meant I couldn't fully immerse myself in what should have been a great fantasy scenario for us die-hard Austen fans! Shame really. . .I hope scriptwriters makes a better go of this in some sort of remake one day.
