Description by Warner Home Video:
A tale of intrigue, adventure and romance, this enchanting dramatisation captures the spirit and wit of Austen's classic novel. The setting is eighteenth- century Bath, a society of decadence and deceit, into which Catherine Morland arrives bursting with freshness, integrity and a passion for macabre Gothic novels. In a time when materialism, not love, governs marriage, Catherine's head is full of fantasy and fiction, of maidens being abducted to sinister castles and heroes riding to the rescue on white horses. When romantic Henry Tilney invites her to his ancestral home, Northanger Abbey, a dark mystery starts to unfold that makes her blood run cold. Are her fantasies coming true' What does the brooding General Tilney want from her and will the truth destroy her chance for love...'
