Movie Summary

Director:
Jerusha Hess
Released:
2013
Rating:
PG-13
Jane Hayes's (Keri Russell) adoration of all things Jane Austen is complicating her love life. Determined to be the heroine of her own story, Jane spends her life savings on a trip to Austenland, an eccentric resort where guests experience complete immersion in the Regency era. Armed with her bonnet, corset and needlepoint, Jane strives to avoid spinsterhood - but has a difficult time determining where fantasy ends and real life"and maybe even love"begins. Jennifer Coolidge (Legally Blonde) and Jane Seymour (Wedding Crashers) also star in this charming romantic comedy.
