This is well worth watching... Olivia Williams as Jane Austen is superb. True to the style of her writing, this portrayal is not overly sentimental and provides insight into what it was like for a talented woman for whom earning a living was deemed "unseemly."

I should warn, however, the viewing quality of the mininova torrent mentioned above is rather fuzzy...

As of this post, mininova is offline, so if you have access to The Box, you can grab a different torrent there (it was re-broadcast) or wait for mininova to come back online...

Again, an excellent production, fantastic cast...

excellent show, olivia williams was a great jane austin. I was worried they may have made it all a bit superficial but it was very well done. Wonder if austin ever suspected that people might be interested in her own life.
