Northanger Abbey

Another fine if rushed BBC adaptation of Jane Austen’s work; filled with lustrous damsels and square jawed men, Austen pokes fun at the Gothic genre with her overly imaginative Catherine Morland who seeks to uncover the obviously tragic secret of the debonair Henry Tilney and the family estate of Northanger Abbey. Naturally, there are plenty of misunderstandings between parties and machinations over fiscally respectable engagements.
