Pride & Prejudice

Hands down, Pride & Prejudice is my favorite! I have watched it so many times, and I know I will watch it thousands of times more. This is my favorite version, and I love the casting of Mr. Darcy and Elizabeth…and the whole cast! If you’ve seen the version with Keira Knightley, it’s okay–but this one is a must see.

North & South

North & South is one of my absolute favorites, and I could watch it again and again. And I do! It’s the story of the daughter of a parson and a cotton mill owner in northern England, and her struggles with a new town and way of life. This is in my top three–I LOVE it!

Persuasion

This is my favorite version of Persuasion…I’ve watched it a hundred times, at least! Young Anne Elliot breaks off her engagement with a handsome naval officer after being persuaded to do so, and eight years later he appears in her life again. SO good!

    1. Ummm…. OK. Poldark. Yes. Yes. Yes. I kept scrolling down hoping it would have been worthy of a mention. It’s my new favorite. The books are excellent too. But there are 12 books in the series. Ross Poldark is yummy. Can’t wait to check these other out.

  1. And I love Emma! I have two versions in my library Gwenyth Paltrow and A&Es version with Kate Beckinsale. I can’t decide which I like better – They both have awesome positives.
