Classic Pick O’ the Day — November 24

Northanger Abbey (2007): A young woman meets the love of her life while on holiday in Bath, England.  Cast: Felicity Jones, JJ Feild, Carey Mulligan  120 min. 7:00pm CDT  OvationTV

A remake, based upon Jane Austen’s part send-up/part homage to the over-the-top gothic romances that shocked and thrilled 18th century audiences.  It was the first novel she wrote but the last published (posthumously, along with Persuasion): a slight affair that boasts a flighty heroine and — vampires?

Nah.  But there’s a spooky castle with a tragic legend attached, a brooding hero, and a young girl caught in between, struggling to decide if the romance of her dreams is better than the love before her eyes.
