Cinematic Jane Austen

Cinematic Versions of Jane Austen

Recently, I blogged about the latest film version of a Jane Austen novel to be released. I write Austen-related adaptations/sequels, as well as contemporary and Regency era books, but many of my readers come to me via an Austen film. They see the movie/TV adaptation and become hooked on the story lines.

Below, you will find a listing of as many Austen-inspired pieces that I could compile. If you know of others, please share them with me.
