Jane Austen fans who can't seem to get enough of the 'Complete Jane Austen series will see an encore presentation on KUED-Channel 7 Sunday, March 16, at 8 p.m., of Austen's gentle parody of gothic fiction, "Northanger Abbey," where Felicity Jones ("Meadowlands") plays romance addict Catherine Morland.
Invited to a medieval country house that appeals to her most lurid fantasies, she forms a close friendship with the younger son on the estate, Henry Tilney (JJ Feild, "The Secret Life of Mrs. Beeton"), but their budding romance is mysteriously cut short.
Morland has an ordinary life and a feverish imagination. When she gets invited to Bath, Catherine is immersed in a world of elaborate balls and handsome men. When one suitor takes her to his family estate, Northanger Abbey, Catherine becomes mired in a world of fact and fantasy. Is there a dark mystery behind the locked doors of Northanger Abbey? Why has her budding romance suddenly been cut short?
