Felicity Jones stars as Catherine Morland, a gothic-novel afficiando whose vivid imagination leads her into trouble during a stay with the wealthy Tilney family at their medieval country house, where Catherine's budding romance with the younger son, Henry Tilney (J.J. Feild), is threatened.

    • Henry: (after she tells him of her suspicions) Catherine, how could you? What sort of a fevered imagination must you have? … Perhaps, after all, it is possible to read too many novels.

    • Henry: I have always found that ignorance and prejudice hold no bar to forming the strongest of opinions.

    • Henry: If I'm to retain my father's favour, I must marry a fortune too. Catherine: And shall you? Henry: I always hoped I'd be lucky, that the girl I fell in love with would come with a fortune attached. Catherine: And… if she should not? Henry: Then that would be a very stern test of my character.

    • Henry Tilney: I often think there's more life and truth and feeling in a good novel than in a hundred dull sermons.

    Notes (1)

    • Although the story is primarily set in Bath, this production was filmed in Dublin, Ireland, using the Dublin Castle as the exterior of Northanger Abbey.
