I'd never read this Jane Austen classic, and when I noticed its availability on Amazon's PBS Masterpiece channel subscription, I grabbed it.
What a delight.
In response to those who rated this poorly, this is a parody of Gothic fiction, was written as such, and is doubtless true to the Jane Austen original, as the characters, plot line and outcome all ring true to Austen's brilliant and classic form.
But a parody is a parody. That is, as the dictionary describes it, "imitation of the style of a particular writer, artist, or genre with deliberate exaggeration for comic effect."
The relevant synonyms include: satire, burlesque, lampoon, pastiche, imitation, mockery. Austen did all of these in this work, at least as this delightful Granada and WGBH Boston co-production depicts the work in video form.
Taking into account the comical intent, and delightful effect, this is an altogether sublime production, which I recommend heartily. Thanks to Amazon's PBS Masterpiece channel subscription for making it available at no added cost!
