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

Trivia

JJ Field (Henry Nobley) actually played the romantic lead of Mr. Tilney in an ITV production of Jane Austen's Northanger Abbey in 2007. See more »

Goofs

When Mr. Nobley rescues Jane from the rainstorm by placing her on his horse during a torrential downpour, the rain is gone as they start to gallop away, the sun is shining, and everything is dry. Even with England's very changeable weather, this scenario would have been impossible. See more »

Fun Romp
1 August 2013 | by See all my reviews

This was just an all around fun movie. I went to a screening in Chicago with a friend and we both left the theater smiling from ear to ear. It was an all around delightful Rom-com. Yes, it was a bit zany and over the top, but in the best possible way.

Jennifer Coolidge made me bust out laughing throughout the movie. Keri Russell, really brought a lot of heart to the character. And I hope to see JJ Feild in more movies. He had a lot of chemistry with Russell.

I read the book several years ago and was excited to hear that it was being adapted into a movie, I am not sure how loyal it was to the book, but who cares? It was a fun summer movie.
