Thank you dear sweet @DawnCloud for the request. **not a definitive list** These are my humble opinions/personal favs. I don't fight on the World Wide Web, but please feel free to rationally object and I will love it so much. Or you can also yell if it feels right, I will still πŸ’— you.

    Pride and Prejudice, 1995 mini-series
    Shout out to the dream boat himself, Colin Firth. That's all the love I have for this. My apologies.

    Persuasion, 1995
    Dashing Naval officers and a long lost love returned = sign me the eff up. Also, Anne is perhaps the most likable of all Austen's leading ladies β€” warm, affectionate, intelligent, and a bit mischievous.

    Pride and Prejudice, 2005
    Ok, this movie is beautiful. It's a *smidge* overhyped in my opinion but the cinematography alone is deserving of praise. The score is also πŸ’―. Didn't love the Darcy casting all that much, but Colin Firth ruined me forever. It's hard to find a better Elizabeth Bennet than Kiera Knightly. Donald Sutherland is incredible in this.

    Mansfield Park, 1999
    Unrequited love. Poor girl out of place living with rich relatives. Modest sexual tension that builds to a (somehow incredibly satisfying) single kiss in the closing minutes. Highly underrated. Good stuff.

    Clueless, 1995
    A modern retelling of "Emma." I don't have to sell you on this movie I hope?? Paul Rudd would be NOTHING and absolute GARBAGE without Clueless. Alicia Silverstone at her most adorable. Knee socks!

    Sense and Sensibility, 1995
    Kate Winslet is my favorite actress of all time and Emma Thompson is flawπŸ‘πŸ»lessπŸ‘πŸ» in this movie. Sisterhood is a big theme and I am a sister-less monster ALL I WANT IS TO BE A DASHWOOD

    Emma, 1996
    Listen, I know it's very en vogue to hate Gwyneth but I don't and this movie is incredible. Mr. Knightley is the most charming man in the Jane Austen catalog. Emma is a very flawed character and extremely selfish and mostly terrible but that's why she's the most relatable. I WILL DIE ON THIS HILL
