Lost In Austen (2008)

Lost In Austen is an ingenious reinvention of Jane Austen's Pride and Prejudice, in which the 'true' story is thrown off track by a very modern heroine who swaps places with Elizabeth Bennet.

Disillusioned with her life in London, Amanda Price (Jemima Rooper) discovers Elizabeth Bennet (Gemma Arterton) in her bathroom.   

Soon she finds herself swapping places with Elizabeth and entering the 'real' fictional world of Pride and Prejudice.

How will she keep the love story of Pride and Prejudice on track when Elizabeth Bennet is stuck in the modern world?

An all star cast bring Austen's classic characters to life with Hugh Bonneville (Mr Bennet), Alex Kingston (Mrs Bennet) and Lindsey Duncan (Lady Catherine De Bourge).

I love Lost In Austen because it is very witty, fun and light hearted! Highly recomenned! :) xx  


  1. I also love Lost in Austen - it's so wonderfully fun it's crazy, but totally great!! I also love Hugh Bonneville as Mr Bennett!! Apparently there's a new film coming out later this year with a similar idea called Austenland... :) xx

  2. Interesting! I didn't know about Austenland. I agree, Lost In Austen is mad but lots of fun! :) xx
