Are you looking for that perfect gift for a period drama fan in your life?  This holiday season PBS Distribution has a wonderful selection of gift-giving options for Jane Austen fans and lovers of period dramas.

Masterpiece PBS is a personal favorite at our house for viewing superb series like PoldarkDownton Abbey, and Victoria.  This year, there are two great sets to add to your shopping list:  Sanditon Season 1 and Victoria The Complete Seasons 1-3 Collection.

SANDITON, SEASON 1 

holiday gifts for jane austen fans, holiday gifts for period drama fans



“Sanditon” is the fan-favorite series that has everyone begging for a second season! Emmy Award®-winning writer and Britain’s national treasure, Andrew Davies, adapts Jane Austen’s last unfinished novel vividly to life in an epic drama romantics will fall in love with. Upon her arrival in the seaside town of Sanditon, the sensible and na├»ve Charlotte Heywood (Rose Williams), observes hypochondria, avarice and attempted seduction run amok. 

Lady Denham (Anne Reid), is playing matchmaker for her destitute nephew, Sir Edward, who is determined to seduce Lady Denham’s ward, Clara and become the primary heir to his aunt’s estate. The arrival of wealthy, mixed-race heiress Miss Lambe, under the guardianship of visionary entreprenuer Tom Parker’s (Kris Marshall), upright and charming, brother Sidney Parker (Theo James), adds an interesting complication. Eligible men naturally find Miss Lambe fascinating, while Charlotte is intrigued by Sidney… 

With many promising loose ends and romantic possibilities, how will the young people pair off? Who will Lady Denham designate as her heir? Will Tom’s tourist spa finally catch on with the public? Where will that lead? Andrew Davies imaginatively enters this world of Georgian-era suitors, hustlers and health cranks and boldly tells us what happens next.

Sanditon may not be your cup of tea if you are a pure Jane Austen fan, as it takes some modern liberties with the story line.  It is based upon Jane Austen's unfinished manuscript.   

Knowing that, it is still an enjoyable period drama with characters who have interesting quirks, beautiful settings and some of the same Andrew Davies charm you'd expect.  It wasn't my favorite of Davies' imaginings, but it has some nods to other Austen characters.

I wouldn't watch it with kids in the room due to its more mature content (backside nudity for example).  Andrew Davies wanted to "spice up" Jane Austen's original unfinished story.  I don't think it really added much to the plotline to make it more "soapy" personally.
 
The ending left fans seriously unhappy, so it remains to be seen if there will be another season yet.

VICTORIA, THE COMPLETE SEASONS 1, 2 & 3 COLLECTION

gift ideas for period drama fans, gifts for jane austen fans


 Discover all three seasons of the unmissable and critically acclaimed global hit drama “Victoria” starring Jenna Coleman as Queen Victoria, a nineteenth-century heroine for our times. This landmark account of the life of one of history’s greatest monarchs begins as Victoria takes her first faltering steps from capricious, hormonal teenager to respected monarch, navigating palace intrigue and constitutional crises alongside an epic romance with her husband Prince Albert (Thomas Hughes). 

As Victoria’s reign continues, she must face the very modern challenge of balancing life as a mother and wife with her work as ruler of the most powerful nation on Earth. As the lavish saga unfolds against the backdrop of pivotal moments in history, the Queen and Prince Albert must meet each public challenge while confronting profound personal change.



Victoria will draw you in from the very first episode.  It is fascinating to get a glimpse inside life of one of the most influential Queens in England.  Some liberties are taken with the historical accuracy, but it only inspires you to research the actual history.  

It's a well written drama about the love story between Victoria and Albert. I really hope that they continue with a season 4 at some point!

The Croods: A New Age Coming To Theaters Thanksgiving #RWM #Sponsored #CroodsNewAge

11/19/20

This sponsored post is with Review Wire Media.


If 2020 has taught us anything, it is being thankful for the little things and spending quality time with family.  This Thanksgiving may be a little different, but we can still celebrate with those we love.  


new movie releases, Croods 2


The Croods: A New Age is coming to a theater near you Thanksgiving Day.  What better way to celebrate than to spend time belly laughing with family?  My kids have been looking forward to this film for a long time!  


About the Film:

The Croods have survived their fair share of dangers and disasters, from fanged prehistoric beasts to surviving the end of the world, but now they will face their biggest challenge of all: another family.  The Croods need a new place to live. So, the first prehistoric family sets off into the world in search of a safer place to call home. When they discover an idyllic walled-in paradise that meets all their needs, they think their problems are solved … except for one thing. Another family already lives there: the Bettermans. The Bettermans (emphasis on the “better”)—with their elaborate tree house, amazing inventions and irrigated acres of fresh produce—are a couple of steps above the Croods on the evolutionary ladder. When they take the Croods in as the world’s first houseguests, it isn’t long before tensions escalate between the cave family and the modern family. Just when all seems lost, a new threat will propel both families on an epic adventure outside the safety of the wall, one that will force them to embrace their differences, draw strength from each other and forge a future together. 





Some fun swag arrived at our door to celebrate the theatrical release including two adorable sloth fanny packs, fuzzy creature keychains, a stationary set, and a rock painting kit.  My girls adore all things sloth ever since they were introduced to Belt in the first film.  The fact that Belt now has a cute pink friend has made them love sloths even more!  (AK was so obsessed with Belt as a toddler that she had to bring him with her EVERYWHERE  It was so cute to hear her ask for her Belt in that little toddler voice.)

The Croods: A New Age looks hysterical and we are looking forward to screening the film!  Be sure to grab your tickets early.
