About Northanger Abbey

In Jane Austen's gentle parody of gothic fiction, Felicity Jones ("The Theory of Everything") plays romance addict Catherine Morland. Invited to a medieval country house that appeals to her most lurid fantasies, she forms a close friendship with the younger son on the estate, Henry Tilney (JJ Feild of "Austenland" and "Captain America"), but their budding romance is mysteriously cut short.
