2008: It's a very good retelling / adaption in my point of view. The characters have many of their original traits, the chemistry between the characters is similar, there is a delighting sheen of Austen's wit and humor visible in Melissa Nathan's writing, and the leap into the 20th Century has been well-crafted by elevating the Elliot family into a rich celebrity sphere.
