Get ready – it’s almost time for Jane Austen mania! Becoming Jane is playing now in the UK, will hit the US in August. The website is up, and you can watch the trailer and see pics of the costumes in the gallery.
ITV (UK tv) will be broadcasting a “Jane Austen season” (this spring in the UK, this winter in the US), which includes new versions of Mansfield Park, Northanger Abbey, and Persuasion (they will be rebroadcasting the Kate Beckinsale version of Emma). Their site has the MP trailer, plus galleries for all three new films. Check out the fabulous stripey ensemble on Maria? in the MP gallery (middle row, middle pic; bottom row, right pic).
If you’re interested on keeping up to date on this and other things Austen, I highly recommend AustenBlog.
