Let's talk about: Northanger Abbey


I have to admit something. 
I have never read Northanger Abbey by Jane Austen. 
And until recently I had never seen a movie adaptation of it either. 
When I saw the cover of this adaptation at the library I had to pick it up and watch it. Mainly because of the cast: Felicity Jones, Carey Mulligan, and JJ Feild. 

It wasn't my favorite Austen but I really liked it and watching this made me want to read it soon. 
I think the cast was so good, as expected. 
JJ Feild and Felicity Jones made this film. 
 

The sass that was JJ Feild as Henry Tilney was so fabulous that he made me giggle quite often. 
I just loved everything about him.
 



And Felicity Jones did a great job as the innocent, curious, and bookish Catherine Morland. 
 

I loved the glimpses into her imagination and definitely related to the idea of a book being so exciting you are always thinking about it. 

Overall I really enjoyed this movie and will watch it again!

Here is the trailer...
