Storyline

Austenland is a romantic comedy about 30-something, single Jane Hayes, a seemingly normal young woman with a secret: her obsession with Mr. Darcy-as played by Colin Firth in the BBC adaptation of Pride and Prejudice-is ruining her love life; no real man can compare. But when she decides to spend her life savings on a trip to an English resort catering to Austen-crazed women, Jane's fantasies of meeting the perfect Regency-era gentleman suddenly become more real than she ever could have imagined. Written by Anonymous

Austenland - laugh out loud funny!
3 October 2013 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I haven't written a review on here for ages but after seeing the little publicised "Austenland" I felt the need to add my views into the pot. I went to see this with a friend yesterday and was honestly expecting an overly cheesy and sloppy romantic movie but hey, as an Austen fan there's nothing wrong with that! However, I was thoroughly impressed with the movie as it was so funny and well scripted. I actually laughed out loud all the way through. I have been to West Wycombe where it is filmed and have read all of Austen's books which of course is an added bonus but even someone who doesn't know the stories to be able to pick up the puns, innuendo etc would still appreciate this film as it's so funny. There are many rubbish comedies produced that have so much PR and marketing around them I think that it's a shame that a film like this that is actually really enjoyable will be seen by few as it has not been promoted. In summary, if you want to see a fun and enjoyable movie and go expecting humour rather than culture, go see this. It won't win any Oscars but is an enjoyable 1 1/2 hours :)
