Jane Austen was a FEMINIST who also believed that a woman should only marry for love. How many times is this betrayed in this series? Charlotte in Davies' presentation is antithetical to what Austen would have written as a strong independent woman as a main character.
Davies" script is melodramatic and his arrogant attitude suggesting that he "knows" what Jane Austen would have written is preposterous! And, Jane NEVER would have dwelled on sex like Davies does in his works by Austen. Jane did not need to dwell on sex to attract readers to her works.
I have just watched Davies' heartless "adaptation" of Austin's unfinished novel, and I hope he is never allowed to write another. He has betrayed Jane Austin and all of her readers. His hubris disgusts me.
