FlixChatter Review: Netflix’s PERSUASION (2022)

Since this movie is clearly made for Gen Z and the supposedly woke audience, let me just say that most involved in this production did NOT understand the assignment. As I said in my trailer post, I was open-minded about this Netflix adaptation, but within 10 minutes I realize they’ve stripped everything I love about …

FlixChatter review: EMMA. (2020)

Jane Austen never dies... from theater adaptations, TV shows to feature films, the demand for Austen-related content remains strong. I am perfectly ok with that. I don't count myself an Austen purist, so I welcome new interpretations/visions, even crazy mashup like Pride & Prejudice & Zombies can be highly enjoyable (hello Colonel Darcy! 😍) This …

FlixChatter Review: Love & Friendship (2016)

You already know I LOVE period dramas and I adore Jane Austen. This was one of the Sundance films I couldn't wait to see and it absolutely didn't disappoint! Love & Friendship is an adaptation of Austen’s short epistolary novel Lady Susan that was published posthumously in 1871. Writer/director Whit Stillman changed its name but the focus is still on Lady Susan, played …
