Risky Regencies

Next Jane Austen Club Selection?

Janet’s post is going up late today, so I’m jumping in to ask a quick question.

As we’ve just done the Ang Lee Sense & Sensibility in the Jane Austen Book Club, should we do the BBC S&S next?

Or what do you think of the idea of doing the four major Pride & Prejudice adaptations, in the order they were made?

Or do you think we shouldn’t repeat a novel yet, but should do a Northanger Abbey or Mansfield Park next, perhaps?

Does easy availability matter to you? How about length?

I vote for Mansfield Park. The 1999 movie is rarely discussed and it was very good.

I vote for either Northanger or Mansfield Park. Of course, with Mansfield, there’s always the BBC miniseries and the movie which I thought was dreadful.

Wow, we already have two very diverging opinions on the MP movie! I bet we could get a good discussion going on it.

Does anyone else want to chime in here, before the decision is made?

Well since people are going for either NA or MP, I vote for MP 1999 or 2007 because the only NA I saw was 2007. . . but I sure have plenty of thoughts on the 1999 MP. . . ugh. 🙂 But sure, I wouldn’t mind a P&P instead. 🙂

I wouldn’t mind discussing MP! I really, really disliked that film, but I think it has a lot of fodder for good conversation. 🙂

Ahem, Cara, length matters.

My vote is for Mansfield Park the movie, just because I had issues with it, and I’d like to see what others’s opinions are.

Read the comments here, and it looks like discussing MP the movie will prove to be cathartic to all of us. 🙂

Very well, then, the 1999 film of MANSFIELD PARK it is!

But we’ll all have to remember that, no matter how strong our opinions are, there are intelligent people who think the opposite, and phrase our remarks accordingly. 🙂
