Summer Repeat: Why Jane Austen Movies Are My Comfort Object


The Frock Flicks team is taking a little time off for a summer break, so we’re repeating some choice posts from the archives.

Everyone has that thing they turn to over and over again — the old reliable, the one true fave, their comfort zone. For a week of summer repeats, we’re kicking back on the couch with the frock flicks we love best. For Kendra, that’s Jane Austen movies. Find out why!

    I just finished watching P+P with Jennifer Ehle and Colin Firth. My all-time favourite P+P.

    • M.E. Lawrence

      That reminds me: A friend of my then-17-year-old daughter invited a select group of young ladies to her house for a sleepover. The requisites were wearing something long and high-waisted, plus the ability to stay up through every episode of the 1995 P&P. A splendid time was had by all.
