Perhaps due to the top-notch humor seen in her other novels, Jane Austen’s 1817 book “Northanger Abbey” is distinctive in her body of work and it stands out among her other classics. The coming-of-age storyline of Northanger Abbey has fewer interpretations in comparison to her other mainstream contemporaries, with just a few genuine adaptations. The fascinating movie adaptation directed by Jon Jones is arguably the most renowned.
Felicity Jones plays Catherine Morland, an Austen protagonist who thoroughly enjoys escaping into her imaginary world of Gothic fiction. She has intensively read s about gloomy dungeons and Gothic fortresses.
The storyline unfolds as young Catherine accepts an invitation to Bath in order to visit some relatives and friends. She discovers that John Thorpe and Henry Tilney are infatuated with her. Catherine’s impressionable youth and naivety rise to the surface when she is asked to remain at Northanger Abbey, and she starts to confuse reality with the Gothic romanticism of her favorite novels. There is a hint of romance even though the author turns her disdain for Gothic books into a blatant satire in this body of work.
The poetry “Elegy Written in a Country Churchyard,” penned in the 18th century, is the origin of the title Far From The Madding Crowd. It revolves around the central character Bathsheba Everdene, who attracts Gabriel Oak’s attention. Although she turned down his wedding proposal, they still keep running into each other.
Like many other period dramas, this movie offers a magnificent setting for its lyrical romance, and Carey Mulligan gives a heartfelt performance to the audience. And it’s no surprise that viewers are touched when a good soundtrack is added to top it off.
The plotline centers on the tragic and gloomy romance involving Cathy, an orphan who’s adopted, and Heathcliff, who shared a home with them as children.

Fire Island, a feel-good movie by Andrew Ahn, revolves around a group of gay men who spend a week at a popular gay destination on the coast of Long Island, New York. Pride and Prejudice gets a contemporary, LGBTQ+ twist in this romantic comedy, yet it manages to stay remarkably authentic to the classic novel.
Love & Friendship, adapted from Jane Austen’s lesser-known epistolary novel Lady Susan, is almost as humorous as her books. Lady Susan is an epistolary novel, which means it is recounted solely through letters the characters send to one another. The movie has a great understanding of her impeccable sense of humor and it never fails to serve as a reminder that Jane Austen was, at her very finest, an incredible giggle-fest.
