Two Movies to Watch over the Holidays

I am a huge Jane Austen fan. I've read all of her books, watched the movies over and over again, and also enjoy books and movies that are inspired by her beloved characters.

My favorite movie is Persuasion.

Persuasion is the story of a single woman who becomes re-acquainted with the man whose offer of marriage she had refused eight years earlier on the advice of a family friend who felt that his financial prospects were poor. She had been in love with him but was persuaded to refuse him. Now he has returned from the war a wealthy man but the same family friend is trying to persuade her to marry someone else. Will she again be persuaded or will she follow her own heart?

My favorite movie inspired by Jane Austen is Lost in Austen.

Lost in Austen is the story of Amanda Price, a modern day girl who is in love with the romance and elegance portrayed in the books of her favorite author, Jane Austen. One day she finds herself in the world of Pride and Prejudice while Elizabeth Bennet is now in our world. Amanda manages to mess up the story at every turn, and desperately tries to fix things for Elizabeth and Darcy. I have seen this several times. It's the perfect movie for a girls night.

If you're looking for something to watch over the holidays then I can highly recommend both of these.
