Blu-ray, DVD Release: Austenland

6 December 2013 10:08 AM, PST | Disc Dish | See recent Disc Dish news »

Blu-ray & DVD Release Date: Feb. 11, 2014

Price: DVD $30.99, Blu-ray $35.99

Studio: Sony Pictures Home Entertainment

For anyone who can’t get enough of Mr. Darcy and the other characters in Jane Austen’s books, welcome to Austenland.

In the movie, Keri Russell (TV’s The Americans) plays Jane Hayes, one such devoted fan, who has saved all her money for a trip of a lifetime — to the eccentric resort Austenland, where fans can live out the Regency era of the books.

Armed with her bonnet, corset and needlepoint, Jane aims to avoid spinsterhood, but her difficulties come in figuring out where the fantasy ends and real life  – and maybe love — begins.

Rated PG-13, Austenland also stars Jane Seymour (Love Wedding Marriage), Jennifer Coolidge (American Reunion), J.J. Feild (Captain America: The First Avenger) and Bret McKenzie (The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey). The film was directed by first-time helmer Jerusha Hess on a screenplay »

Watch the Trailer for AMC’s Revolutionary War Spy Drama ‘Turn’

2 December 2013 12:38 PM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Because every network needs a show about spies (and because “Rubicon” is no longer on the air), AMC is going back to the beginning and releasing their Revolutionary War-set drama “Turn” this spring.

While no air date has been set, AMC has released the first trailer today.

Penned by “Nikita’s” Craig Silverstein and executive produced by Barry Josephson from Josephson Entertainment, the series revolves around the Culper Ring spies who, in the summer of 1778, affected America’s fight for independence. It stars Jamie Bell, Kevin McNally, Burn Gorman, Angus MacFadyen, Jj Feild, Seth Numrich, Daniel Henshall, and Heather Lind.

First Trailer for AMC’s New Revolutionary War Series Turn

2 December 2013 10:29 AM, PST | | See recent news »

Last night during the winter finale of The Walking Dead (read Dave’s recap here), AMC unveiled the first trailer for its new upcoming drama series Turn, and it's now available online for all to see.  Billed as “the untold story of America’s first spy ring,” the show begins in the summer of 1778 and centers on a New York farmer named Abe Woodhull (Jamie Bell) who bands together with a group of childhood friends to form the Culper Ring, a group of spies who turn the tide in America’s fight for independence.  It’s definitely a different kind of series for AMC, but the network is at a bit of a crossroads with Breaking Bad gone and Mad Men ending in 2015, so they’re no doubt looking for another breakout hit to go alongside The Walking Dead, which will probably run for many, many more years.

With Breaking Bad over and Mad Men on the way out, AMC is hitching its wagon to the past in hopes of ensuring a bright future with two new shows: Halt & Catch Fire, set in the early 1980s, and Turn, set in 1778. Last night, during The Walking Dead mid-season finale, we got our first look at Turn, starring Jamie Bell, and all signs point to AMC's continued dominance in scripted drama.

An Austen expert's view of Austenland

6 October 2013 11:00 PM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

Louise West was curator of Jane Austen's House Museum. What does she think of the Us theme-park romcom?

This is a dreadful film. But at its heart, there is a valid idea. It's about a 32-year-old Jane Austen obsessive called Jane, who visits a theme park where Austen fans dress up in Regency costume and are courted by actors. Jane, played by Keri Russell, does ring true: I met a number of women like her in my time as curator of Jane Austen's House Museum in Chawton, though I can't say whether any of them actually had a lifesize cutout of Colin Firth as Mr Darcy in their bedroom.

As far as I know, a theme park like Austenland doesn't exist, but I can certainly imagine one. There's a Dickens World in Kent with costumed actors giving tours – but I don't think they actually immerse visitors in the »

Blue Jasmine, Prisoners, Greedy Lying Bastards: this week's new films

Blue Jasmine | Prisoners | Greedy Lying Bastards | Mister John | Hannah Arendt | Runner Runner | It's A Lot | Girl Most Likely | Smash & Grab: The Story Of The Pink Panther | Austenland

Blue Jasmine (12A)

(Woody Allen, 2013, Us) Cate Blanchett, Alec Baldwin, Peter Sarsgaard. 98 mins

In the downward trajectory of late-era Allen comes a startling spike to remind us how great he still can be, especially when it comes to women's roles. This show belongs to Blanchett, playing a Manhattan one-percenter brought down to earth. Propped up by alcohol, drugs and her sister, she's an accident that's already happening, and a magnificent, tragicomic creation.

Prisoners (15)

(Denis Villeneuve, 2013, Us) Hugh Jackman, Jake Gyllenhaal, Paul Dano. 153 mins

A kidnapping case refuses to crack in this weighty, slippery whodunit.

Greedy Lying Bastards (12A)

(Craig Scott Rosebraugh, 2012, Us) 90 mins

Climate-change deniers get a dose of their own medicine, as this impassioned doc lays out a history of hypocrisy.

Austenland Review

26 September 2013 5:00 AM, PDT | | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Remember the butterfly feelings you got the first time you saw Mr Darcy – aka Colin Firth – dive into the lake at Pemberley and emerge on the other side, all wet and troubled in the BBC’s adaptation of Pride and Prejudice? If no goofy smile creeps over your face, this crazy comedy will have no bearing on you whatsoever – or, you’re a straight male who had to endure the sighs of another while watching this iconic moment of dreaminess in the 1995 TV mini-series.

Austenland tenderly mocks the avid Austen fan in a harmless, frivolous and screwball manner. It’s adapted by Gentlemen Broncos and Nacho Libre writer Jerusha Hess and Austenland author Shannon Hale, thanks to funding by Twilight author-turned-film-producer Stephenie Meyer’s Fickle Fish Films; the company’s aim being to translate authors’ works for the big screen. With Hess’s quirky comedic background and Meyer’s knowledge »

'Austenland' review: 'Pride and Prejudice? Shame and indifference'

23 September 2013 1:08 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Director: Jerusha Hess; Screenwriter: Jerusha Hess, Shannon Hale; Starring: Keri Russell, Jj Feild, Jennifer Coolidge, Bret McKenzie, Jane Seymour; Running time: 97 mins; Certificate: 12A

Keri Russell has been a shining light on TV thanks to Felicity and FX's The Americans, but she's never quite managed to catch fire on the big screen. Where Waitress should've provided her with a career springboard, it instead sent her into a series of thankless second-string wife or love interest parts. Russell's name sits above the title in new romantic comedy Austenland, but what a shame then that it's a huge waste of her considerable talents.

Based on Shannon Hale's chick lit novel, it follows an American singleton obsessed with all things Jane Austen who cobbles together her life savings to take a trip to an Austen-themed resort in the UK. Dress up, role play and comical British accents are the order of the »

Review: Austenland

5 September 2013 12:00 PM, PDT | Slackerwood | See recent Slackerwood news »

I can't recall if I've ever been a huge Jane Austen fan. Sure, I have always appreciated her writing, and even starred in a high-school production of Pride and Prejudice. (Don't get excited -- I just played the maid.) I do know that I typically don't go out of my way to see film adaptations of her work because I have never found myself to be the "hopeless romantic" type. This is why I have decided that Austenland is the perfect film for someone like me -- eager to keep the realism of romance, but secretly wanting our heroine to find a good guy in the end. 

Jane (played by the adorable Keri Russell) is obsessed with Jane Austen's work. We see a quick flash of her childhood and young adult life, which includes all things British ... such as a life-size cut out of Colin Firth in costume as Mr. »

Film Review: Jane Rolls Over Again for Wretched ‘Austenland’

23 August 2013 2:43 PM, PDT | | See recent news »

Chicago – One of the most incorrect assumptions in literature iconography is the focus on Jane Austen as a purely romantic writer – skipping the depth of character, humor and cynicism in her work, for the sake of mooning over “Mr. Darcy.” The new film “Austenland” continues this trend.

Rating: 1.5/5.0

This is adapted from a novel that no one evidently should read, from screenwriters Jerusha Hess (“Napoleon Dynamite,” “Gentleman Broncos”) and the source novelist Shannon Hale. It would be a great relief to present Jane Austen to them, Marshall-McCluhan-in-Annie-Hall style, and have the legend say, “you know nothing of my work.” Co-opting the great author’s name for this dull and terrible exercise in “romance” is a travesty in story woven justice. The filmmakers may counter that it’s all in fun, but there is nothing fun about taking one element of an author’s good works, and creating a “theme park” imaging of it, »

Interview With The Cast And Director Of Austenland

17 August 2013 10:51 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Growing up, girls often tend to read and whole-heartedly believe in fairytales, and think their lives could magically turn into a head-over-heals love story, like the ones they read in Jane Austin novels. While many girls start to outgrow their romanticized fantasies as they mature into young women, there are some who wistfully cling to their belief that their Mr. Darcy will still arrive on their doorstep to sweep them off their feet.

Jane Hayes, the main character in the new romantic comedy Austenland, which marks the feature film directorial debut of Napoleon Dynamite writer Jerusha Hess, is one such hopeless romantic who longs to live in a Jane Austin novel. It isn’t until she lives out her life-long fantasy though that she realizes that her dreams aren’t as romantic as they seem.

Austenland, which is based on the 2007 novel of the same name by Shannon Hale, follows the 30-something, »

Keri Russell won the admiration of many an adolescent girl during her four-season run as the star of "Felicity," a teen drama focused on an awkward young girl's adjustment to college life. Now those teen girls have grown up, are in their 30s, and get to see Russell embrace an adult fantasy reminiscent of the wistful ones many of us had years ago. Russell stars as Jane, a Jane Austen obsessive who blows an exorbitant amount of money to immerse herself in a Jane Austen reenactment resort in England.The hilarious cast of supporting players includes Jennifer Coolidge, Jj Feild, Bret McKenzie, James Callis, Georgia King and Jane Seymour. Adapted from the novel by Shannon Hale and directed by Jerusha Hess, who previously brought us "Napolean Dynamite," the film premiered at Sundance and opens tomorrow, August 16 in New York and Los Angeles with plans to expand.

Fans of Jane Austen’s acclaimed literary works have long appreciated the author’s heavy emphasis on outspoken women who aren’t afraid to say what they need to in order to capture their dream man. But the new romantic comedy ‘Austenland,’ which was co-written and helmed by Jerusha Hess in her feature film directorial debut, takes a quirky tone to show how even the most reserved women can fulfill their Austen fantasies. The movie, which is based on the 2007 Shannon Hale novel of the same name, celebrates the fun aspects of the iconic writer’s romanticism. ‘Austenland’ follows 30-something, single Jane Hayes (Keri Russell), a seemingly normal young woman with a secret:  [ Read More ]
