Historical Romance Movies available on Netflix, Hulu and Amazon Prime

If you love historical romance novels then you'll probably love historical romance movies as well. And if you have a subscription to Netflix, Hulu and/or Amazon Prime, you're in luck! Now, they do have a tendency to change availability, so my advice would be for you to watch these when you find them. I was especially pleased to find an updated version of Northanger Abbey (2007) on Hulu that I haven't seen before. It stars Felicity Jones & JJ Feild and was definitely worth watching.

Hulu also has my favorite version of Pride and Prejudice starring Colin Firth as the irresistible Mr. Darcy, as well as the 2009 version of Emma starring Elementary's Jonny Lee Miller as Mr. Knightly. He was great, by the way =)

On Netflix you'll find Mansfield Park from 1999 (also with Jonny Lee Miller) and the 1995 version of Sense and Sensibility staring Kate Winslet, Emma Thompson and Hugh Grant.
Amazon Prime also offers the above mentioned Mansfield Park, Pride and Prejudice and Sense and Sensibilty in case you don't subscribe to Hulu or Netflix. So there are some great historical romance movies to choose from, and not just based on Jane Austen novels either. There's the 2011 version of Jane Eyre which I still need to watch. The same goes for North and South and the 2012 version of Great Expectations - anything starring Helen Bonham Carter is bound to be awesome, so my hopes are high.
Have you seen any/all of these? Any plans to re-watch? Maybe you'll find some great ones that I missed. If so, please let me know by commenting below. Thanks!
