Overview

Synopsis

Jane Austen's Life
In this first episode of a three-part look at the life and work of Jane Austen, viewers are introduced to the woman herself. Jane Austen's Life takes us to the family's home in Chawton, and also introduces viewers to some of the crucial people in Austen's life, including her brother who assisted in the publication of her six novels and her sister Cassandra, a lifelong friend and confidant. ~ Rob Ferrier, Rovi

The Bronte Sisters
Per its title, the 55-minute documentary The Brontë Sisters recounts the life stories of the famed trio of Nineteenth century English sisters, Charlotte, Emily and Anne Brontë, highly regarded for authoring a series of seminal novels including Jane Eyre, Villette, Wuthering Heights, and that work's follow-up, the lesser-known Agnes Grey. The program traces their journeys from childhoods in Haworth, West Yorkshire, England in the 1820s, through prodigious writing collaborations with Bramwell at an early age, and their publication of several novels that turned Victorian Era England onto its head, beginning in 1847. It then covers the premature deaths of all three sisters, prior to 1855. This program - one serves as an unofficial companion piece to André Téchiné's marvelous 1979 feature film The Brontë Sisters (AKA Les Soeurs Brontë), starring Marie-France Pisier, Isabelle Huppert and Isabelle Adjani, and shot in both French and English-language versions. ~ Nathan Southern, Rovi

George Eliot: Life and Literature
Widely known for propagating one of the boldest and most daring lifestyles of late 19th century England, Mary Ann Evans - better known as George Eliot - scandalized Victorian Era Britain on a personal level even while she triumphed as a novelist. The documentary George Eliot: Life and Literature recounts Eliot's life story and most noteworthy career accomplishments, from her childhood in Griff, England with two Anglican parents, through her drift into Coventry society, her rejection of many church teachings, and the publication of such groundbreaking literary masterpieces as Adam Bede, Middlemarch, The Mill on the Floss and Silas Marner. ~ Nathan Southern, Rovi
