In response to Another NA adaptation?, written by Carolyn B on January 06, 1998 at 22:38:40
] On the new Emma FAQ, Kali mentions a Clueless-type adaptation of Northanger Abbey called Ruby in Paradise, starring Ashley Judd. Has anyone seen it? Should I try to track it down at my local video store?
] (Being as Ah'm in the South, I might could find it, if it has one of them Judd women in it.)
Ruby in Paradise is a wonderful movie and I've seen two or three times, but I never associated it with Northanger Abbey!!! Is it really supposed to be an adaptation? I mean, if you've read or seen Emma, the parallels in Clueless are fairly obvious. Unless I missed the boat big time, I don't see the parallels here. Guess I'll check out the sequels page!
Anyway, it's definitely worth a rental. Ashley Judd is very good.
