Did anyone else watch this on BBC1 tonight? I enjoyed it immensely -- I thought the script was excellent (based on Jane Austen's letters, apparently), and Olivia Williams was perfect as Austen.
But I wondered -- would I have liked it as much if I knew as much biographical detail about Jane Austen as I do about, say, Charlotte Bronte? What do the Janeites make of it? Were you annoyed by the liberties taken with the truth? For example, that in reality, she wrote anonymously, but in the film, she is feted and recognised?
