Lost in Austen stars Jemima Rooper, Elliot Cowan, Hugh Bonneville and Florence Hoath and follows the tale of Amanda, a woman who is totally obessed with Jane Austen's Pride and Prejudice, carrying a battered copy of the book everywhere she goes. When her own love life seems to be on the brink of ending she discovers Elizabeth Bennet in her bathroom and makes a journey through a door into Meryton. Elizabeth stays in present day London leaving Amanda to step into her life as a "friend".
This was a mini series originally on ITV I think but I never actually watched it then. I happened across it as I browsed LoveFilm for something to watch online. If you love Pride and Prejudice then try and watch the series. It's an unusual twist on the classic tale and brings some modern touches as future and past clash.
