Miss Austen Regrets


Miss Austen Regrets (2008)
This film is based on the 'life and loves' of Jane Austen. Or so they tell us.

The screenwriter, Gwyneth Hughes, based this on the published letters of Jane Austen, which we know are only a small sample of those she actually wrote. Many were destroyed by her sister Cassandra after her death. The plot such as there is centres around Jane's niece, Fanny, and her efforts to find a husband.
