Movie Reviews

A slide show on the DVD
(1 out of 5 stars)

"This 2-disc DVD is nothing but a slide show with audio commentary. We see green meadows with dogs running, seashores, flowers, and more meadows while listening to a commentary. No reference to the meadows, etc. was ever made until Bath, England. It was more like a travel DVD than a documentary of Jane Austen. I thought I would see the Jane Austen Centre at the very least. Instead, there were more shots of modern day Bath with no reference to what we were seeing. I was disappointed in this dvd set to say the very least. There was nothing new or interesting in this DVD in my opinion."
Major Disappointment

"I am a great Jane Austen fan, so I was eager to see a documentary on her life. This was a slide show of photos that kept recycling during the audio commentary. The audio commentary was unorganized and uninteresting.
Life, Society and Works was poorly conceived and executed DVD. I have never thrown out a DVD collection until now. It's not even worth donating."
