Valentine’s Day is approaching, as a quick trip to literally any store of any type will reveal, in case you are like me and forget the calendar dates! Therefore, romance is in the air and thus it is logical to turn to our most beloved romantic novelist: Jane Austen. And, yes, she IS an author of romance, albeit not as we deem the label these days. The screenshots below from the plethora of cinematic adaptations lends credence to this opinion. We whom adore Jane Austen’s novels also adore the stories brought to life on the screen!
So just how much of an Austen fanatic are you? The 21 couples shown below are from major mediums. . . direct period dramas mostly but a handful of modern offerings as well. A true devotee will be able to name the movies no problemo. A super-star Austenite will know the release year AND the characters’ names. How about naming the actors? WHOA! That would be amazing. . . and maybe a wee bit scary!
I’ve included the answers in a spoiler at the bottom, but before peeking and ruining the fun, give it a go! Be sure to let me know in the comments how many you got right!!
