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

Fun Romp
1 August 2013 | by eanderso-1See 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.
