COMMUNITY REVIEWS

Northanger Abbey submitted by SBNB on July 28, 2014, 9:41pm I was mildly disappointed with this movie.

A+ submitted by hduke on June 19, 2016, 12:25am Ten minutes into this movie I had to pause it so I could go buy a copy on Amazon. It was that delightful. :)

Lovely submitted by majean on August 8, 2018, 8:26pm I love J. J. Feild, so it was nice to see him in role as hero. I think they have good chemistry as a couple.

Enjoyable submitted by tkuz5 on June 22, 2021, 8:19pm Really enjoyed this adaptation. Love Felicity Jones and JJ Field

Reflects the spirit of the book submitted by Diananana on June 17, 2022, 10:47pm I adore this adaptation. It succeeds where others have failed. It captures Catherine's naïveté and obsession with gothic novels. It solidly brings out Austen's point that the mundane callousness of real people is just as evil as the fantastical cruelty in novels. J.J. Feild and Felicity Jones as Henry and Catherine are perfect in their roles, as is Sylvestra Le Touzel as Mrs. Allen. (Sylvestra Le Touzel played Fanny Price in the 1983 adaptation of Mansfield Park.) In the film, characters sometimes engage in behavior that is well beyond their most improper actions in the book. Perhaps this was done to increase the drama or because the subtleties of Regency manners are hard for modern viewers to understand. These are just details. As a whole, the film reflects the spirit of the book. I never appreciated the novel very much before seeing this film, and now I am very fond of it.
