In probably the first film about Jane Austen that begins and ends in Texas, historian Amanda Vickery charts the surprising twists and turns that transformed a minor Regency writer grew into a global literary brand. On a journey from rural Hampshire, to the family home of Princess Di, from the trenches of the First World War to the lake where Colin Firth emerged in a wet shirt and on to a huge Jane Austen convention in Fort Worth, Vickery encounters Austen’s audience over the last 200 years.
In each era she discovers how differently Austen has been read by every generation and, with a generous helping of costumes and clips from the great vault of Austen adaptations, she examines why Austen has more lovers today than ever before.
