Lost In Austen is an ingenious reinvention of Jane Austen's Pride And Prejudice, in which the 'true' story is thrown off track by a very modern heroine who swaps places with Elizabeth Bennet. Disillusioned with her life in London, Amanda Price (Jemima Rooper) discovers Elizabeth Bennet (Gemma Arterton) in her bathroom. Soon she finds herself swapping places with Elizabeth and entering the 'real' fictional world of Pride And Prejudice. How will she keep the greatest love story of all time on track when Elizabeth Bennet is stuck in the modern world?

A splendid adaptation of Pride and Prejudice - Lost in Austen review by Chris Tew

Spoiler Alert

I found this through reading Hugh Bonneville’s autobiography. It is a very clever adaptation of Pride and Prejudice where Jemima Rooper finds a door in her bathroom where Elizabeth Bennett appears.

They swap places with each other Elizabeth ( Gemma Arteton) becomes an au pair girl and Jemima Rooper enters into the early 19th century story. Mr Darcy goes into the lake with his shirt on as in the Colin Firth BBC version- a nice touch.It was filmed in 2008 when funds were adequate for this kind of adaptation.It is hugely enjoyable and strongly recommended
