Austen meets Rowling

★★★★

Susanna Clarke’s fusion of Austen and Rowling, adapted by the BBC and director Todd Haynes over seven gripping episodes. The deeper we get into its labyrinth of conflicted magicians, conniving faeries and period-piece-gone-mad atmosphere, the more you fall prey to its spell.
