I admittedly have a huge crush on Ana Taylor Joy, which is the main reason I turned this on. I was impressed right away with the production design and the immaculate costumes worn. But I wondered whether this was a story I could enjoy, until realizing I'd watched a version of this long ago with my mother. Homeschooling with her often led to days full of Jane Austen. 30 minutes in and I was surprised how much I was enjoying myself. Snickering at the silly rich people of olden times with their often ridiculous problems and sensibilities. While the main story arch is mostly old news, I really enjoyed all the little character traits that I hadn't remembered. The father and his damn drafts. The nosophobic sister... These little details made the movie truly enjoyable for me and of course, Anya Taylor-Joy is just remarkably adorable.
