Death Comes to Pemberley (2014)
The weaving of a murder mystery into the cast of Pride and Prejudice will undoubtedly set the teeth of some Austen fans on edge, but as a big fan of both James and the genre, I was quite happy with the result. The lushness of Austen's settings, the classism of the era, and the costumes are all wonderful. Trevor Eve gives a good performance as a nuanced bad guy. Recommended, and it is streaming on Netflix.
