Performers, Cast and Crew:
The courting rituals of the 19th century come alive in this A&E collection featuring two adaptations of classic love stories: JANE EYRE, starring Samantha Morton as the famously lovelorn governess; and EMMA, Jane Austen's timeless tale of a lovely young matchmaker. See individual titles for additional details.
Join A&E for a wry visit to the drawing rooms and country manors of 19th-century England with two exquisite adaptations of the most beloved stories of all time: Jane Austen's EMMA and Charlotte Brontë's JANE EYRE - now packaged together in the crystal clear digital clarity of DVD.
From the greatest romantic novelist of all time comes a delightfully wicked comedy of love and matchmaking. Jane Austen's sly and vivacious heroines have enchanted readers for more than 200 years. EMMA, Starring Kate Beckinsale (The Last Days of Disco), is the story of a rich, clever and beautiful young woman who can't resist orchestrating other people's love lives. As her romantic plans go ridiculously wrong, however, it's Emma herself who risks missing out on her perfect match!
Charlotte Brontë's moving story of JANE EYRE, about the improbable love between a young governess and her mysterious and tragic employer, is one of the towering classics of English literature. After a wretched childhood as an orphan, Jane Eyre arrives at Thornfield Hall to take over her duties as the governess. She soon falls in love with the brooding owner of Thornfield, Mr. Rochester. Jane gradually wins his heart, but they must first overcome the dark secrets of his past before they can truly find happiness. Starring Samantha Morton (A&E's Emma) and Ciaran Hinds (Persuasion, A&E's Ivanhoe).
