Maurice, a still-working actor whiles away his dwindling days playing bit parts (corpses, mostly) or at the local pub with a pair of equally frail footlights friends, drama queen Ian and taciturn Donald. Ian announces that his niece has sent her wayward daughter to stay with him. Jessie is a borderline hooligan, surly, self-centered, willful, and a prodigious drinker. Maurice looks at Jessie with unapologetic longing, appreciating things she can't see in herself, but also the idea of youth--specifically, womanly youth. Jessie appraises Maurice to see what she can get out of him, and they play at Henry Higgins tutoring Eliza Doolittle together. Both are prickly, independent egoists, and wherever they're going, neither is going quietly

The Jane Austen collection ( Visual )
4 editions published between 2005 and 2010 in English and held by 17 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The popularity of the adaptations of Jane Austen's novels is staggering. Much is attributed to her use of such universal themes as marriage, social pressure, and the generation gap; many love her strong, spirited and unpretentious heroines and her emphasis on reason, moderation, fidelity and consideration; but most of all it is her sparkling dialogue, razor-sharp wit, marvellous characters and ingeniously intricate plots that have made her a small-screen success. All of these are intrinsic in the BBC television adaptations of the Austen novels. "Emma" perfectly balances humour and romance; "Persuasion" has a great strong heroine; "Sense and sensibility" features the duelling of spirited sisters; "Mansfield Park" can claim Austen's most outrageous supporting characters; "Northanger Abbey" marvellously satirizes gothic romances, while the electric sensuality of "Pride and prejudice" has, with the courtship of Elizabeth and Darcy, remained everyone's favourite love story
