She's like 50 but in the book she's supposed to be 28

EXCELLENT in regards to how well it stayed true to the story... I loved Anne in this version, though I'll admit, she seemed a bit strong and resilliant. In regards to the costumes - OMG, SO 70's... the fabric was just... *bleh*. The production felt very stage-play-ish, but I enjoyed this one, in comparision to some of the other early BBC adaptions.

This is faithful to the text, but not to the spirit of the book. But it's still better than the Penry-Jones/Hawkins adaptation (not that this is saying much).

An excellent version, though long, with a true understanding of the Jane Austen story with a fine British cast.

close to book's story, but this Anne is too strong. As it's an old low budge production, the set & costumes lack visual appeal.

decent length - however, anne is so old - there's no way she's 27 or however old she's supposed to be - she looks 40. and the sets - unfortunately it's very plain it's britain in the 70's - there's just something about the film quality they used. and then the colors for the costumes are hideous - it makes getting to the acting difficult.
