I capture the castle

You can take Jane Austen out of this world but you cannot take her out of Hollywood or out of movies in general. Her stories have had an everlasting impact on the psyche of storytellers ever since. Filmmakers use all kinds of guises to hide the derivative nature of their tales but rarely succeed. “I capture the castle” tries very hard not to be “Sense and Sensibility” which it essentially is.

A rather nutty family lives in an old castle and the head of the household tries to write a novel but couldn’t really do it. The family struggles to make ends meet and the two daughters tried to find love and meaning. One of them tries to get married and the other one concentrates on her diary.

Eventually things turn out generally well however the ending tries to take a bold step in a needless search for exclusivity but it is too late till then.
