Movie Review: Northanger Abbey (2007)

Northanger Abbey, Grade: B+

I really enjoyed this version of Northanger Abbey. The 1986 version wasn't very well done, but this version was just delightful. The actor who plays John just want to strangle them! I love the innocence of Catherine and how she wants to be good and yet she is so naive when it comes to society. We also get a better picture of Isabella and what kind of person she is...her foray with Captain Tilney. I just love the themes of Jane Austen. It's so important to marry for love (and hopefully money as well)!

Part of the Everything Austen Challenge.


  1. I really enjoyed this version of Northanger Abbey. The novel was fun, and so is this adaptation. I love Henry Tilney! He's so goofy and lovable. And Catherine is the perfect balance of naiveté and innocence.

  2. I'm glad you also enjoyed it! Thanks for commenting!

  3. I have not see this version. I have only seen the most recent BBC one that they showed last year on PPS. Might have to rent this one. :)

  4. I loved PBS in 2008 when they did all these on Masterpiece Theatre! I have to say that this was probably my least favorite that they had shown but it was still a good movie!

  5. haven't seen any of the movie or televised versions of this story... yet. looking forward to seeing this one though.

  6. I really enjoyed this movie as well. I like your new layout, btw. Very cool!
